Participate in Research

Participate in Parkinson’s Research

There is still much to learn about PD.  Continued research is essential to a better understanding of disease progression, possible therapies and an eventual cure.

Participating in a clinical trial is an invaluable way for YOU to get involved in the pursuit of a cure for Parkinson’s disease. No amount of funding or other resources can make up for a lack of volunteers.

Locally, there is much going on in research.  Below are a few ways for you to get involved.

The WA State Parkinson Disease Registry

APDA Northwest is proud to fully fund the Parkinson Disease Registry.  The registry helps make research happen more quickly by connecting willing research participants to the research community.
