Parkinson’s Families Project (PFP)

This study will investigate the genetic causes of Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders to help develop new and improved treatments.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at University College London.

Criteria

  • People who developed Parkinson’s or another movement disorder before or at age 45

OR

  • People with Parkinson’s or another movement disorder, where there is a family history or another family member with a movement disorder.

Location

Involves

  • One clinic visit (1-2 hours) will include a range of tests (blood and/or saliva samples), cognitive and movement assessments as well as a questionnaire about symptoms and family history.
  • You will also be asked if other members of your family (parents, siblings) would like to take part by donating a sample, even if they are unaffected. This will help researchers to understand any genetic links.
