Making a difference together

A Parkinson's Disease Initiative is excited to announce a new collaboration with Shake It Up Australia Foundation. Our two groups have come together in an effort to increase the visibility and accessibility of Parkinson’s disease trials in Australia.

Clinical trials are the final and crucial step in delivering new drugs and better treatments to patients. There are many different types of Parkinson’s trials, including ones that test new drug compounds and devices (interventional trials), ones that aim to better understand the disease (observational trials), and tests of non-pharmacological interventions.
