About Dutch Parkinson Scientists

Towards a world without Parkinson’s disease. That is our ultimate goal. Unfortunately, there is no cure yet for this progressive and devastating disease. Driven by the urgent need to advance knowledge on disease mechanisms and identify disease-modifying treatments for Parkinson’s disease, Dutch Parkinson scientists join forces with other Parkinson associations in the Netherlands. We have joined the Parkinson's Alliance in the Netherlands.

The overall aim of Dutch Parkinson Scientists is to accelerate scientific research into the causes and consequences of the (treatment of) Parkinson's disease and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s. Our mission is to lower the prevalence, develop disease-modifying treatment strategies and improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s disease or related parkinsonism.

  • We will contribute to the research and innovation agenda in the field of Parkinson's in the Netherlands.
  • We will promote and accelerate scientific research aiming to prevent, develop disease-modifying treatment paradigms and into innovate or improve care for Parkinson’s and related disorders.
  • We will organize an annual meeting for its members, as well as working groups of Parkinson scientists.
  • The association was founded on April 17, 2021 and currently has approximately 150 Parkinson's researchers in various fields.

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? Read more here:  https://www.parkinsonnext.nl/onderzoekersenbedrijven/
