Parkinson's Monument Discovery Project

Despite major research breakthroughs, there are still no treatments that can slow, stop or reverse the progression of Parkinson's.

The Monument Trust Discovery Award at the University of Oxford is the largest ever research grant given by Parkinson's UK, the UK's biggest research and support charity for people affected by Parkinson's. This ground-breaking project launched the Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre, bringing together a world-class team of researchers to better understand Parkinson's to allow everyone to live free from symptoms of the condition. Working together, we're now closer than ever to our goal.

We are currently recruiting 1,500 people recently diagnosed with Parkinson's and 300 brothers or sisters of people with Parkinson's .We run research clinics in 11 sites across the Thames Valley, so you won't have to travel far to get involved in our research.

Developing tests that can diagnose Parkinson's at an earlier stage, coupled with treatments that tackle the root problems, will provide the best chance of protecting the remaining nerve cells and slowing or stopping Parkinson's.

If you have Parkinson's diagnosed in the past three years, or are a brother or sister of someone with Parkinson's, and can travel to one of our research clinics, why not consider taking part in our research?

You can find out more about the Discovery project by calling the Dendron NHS Research team on Tel: 01865 234892 or by emailing us at: Parkinsons.Discovery@nhs.net
Further information on our study is also available on the Parkinson's UK website
