The Parkinson Project and Parkinson's Disease
Hope by itself is not a strategy; but hope, love, caring, research, science. medicine, families, patients, people who care, and a world that knows more about Parkinson's disease and decides that we need to do more to find a cure for Parkinson's disease and other neurological diseases - all of this together is a strategy.

Welcome to The Parkinson Project page.
The Parkinson team includes people from all walks of life. We are scientists, artists, photographers, activists, researchers and physicians, teachers, patients, composers, and many more. We come from diverse backgrounds but what we have in common is our focus and desire to make a difference in the lives of patients and increase funding for research on Parkinson's disease and other neurological diseases.
The Parkinson Project was created with the above goals in mind, starting in 2017 and focusing on creating partnerships with people and organizations in order to achieve the above goals.
Over the last few years, I have learned so much about James Parkinson as well as the patients who have inspired me to do more. As a scientist I also know that finding a cure and realistic therapeutic applications for Parkinson's disease requires a great deal of funding, more research and bringing organizations and people together. This is not to say that the great organizations which are currently working on this major challenge are not doing enough. These great organizations in the USA, UK and the rest of the world are working very hard to make a difference. We will visit some of these organizations here and will partner with them. The scope we are looking at is not in one location but global. The patients I have met have set these goals for me and many of my colleagues. Achieving what at times seems impossible requires great commitment.
