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.
