We want to make Dundee the global centre for Parkinson’s research. Large parts of the puzzle – respected experts, state-of-the-art facilities, established links with charitable foundations and pharma – are already in place. But while we have made significant steps, we know that we are capable of taking leaps forward in our quest to develop new treatments for Parkinson’s disease.

But for that to happen we need your help. Parkinson’s has not given up its secrets easily, but our experts have a proven track record of success in making breakthroughs that could lead to even bigger discoveries. We have the people, the commitment and the determination to make a difference, but we need to keep attracting the brightest minds and purchasing the latest technology if we do not want to waste this potential.

Our team work with people living with Parkinson’s every day. They inspire us and motivate us to do what we do. But we want to do more, and that is why we turn to you. Together we have the potential to transform lives now and for years to come.
