Interesting links

ParkinsonNEXT is an online platform where people with Parkinson's, their relatives and care providers can easily participate in research. We help researchers find participants for their studies, which range from questionnaire research to clinical trials. Our database now covers more than 3800 participants. Through ParkinsonNEXT, researchers and companies can therefore do better research and achieve a breakthrough in the treatment of people with Parkinson's. ParkinsonNEXT is the part of ParkinsonNet that is responsible for research and innovation. Curious about what we can do for you?
