The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center has a long-standing tradition of cutting edge research in Parkinson’s Disease and related disorders at the University of Virginia. Ours is an experienced research team that includes physicians, clinical investigators, experienced clinical trial coordinators, and core support resources for research including a dedicated clinical research unit.
Our research team has participated in many of the original, ground-breaking clinical trials in PD and HD that led to the FDA approved treatments that are now considered standard of care. We have conducted major studies at UVA in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Parkinson’s and Huntington’s Study Groups, international movement disorder research groups, and pharmaceutical companies. Additional research initiatives for pilot studies have been supported by APDA Center for Advanced Research and through private donations.
Our commitment to understanding and treating neurologic diseases that affect our patients has never been stronger. We continue to offer new research studies and trials and are grateful to patients and families who volunteer to be part of this crucial work.
