Cure Parkinson’s Presenting to Parkinson’s Ireland

Cure Parkinson’s is the UK’s only charity focused solely on finding a Cure for Parkinson’s. The charity was set up by four people living with Parkinson’s in 2005 who were frustrated by the lack of progress with curative treatments.

Since then, the charity has made significant progress in the quest for a cure. They have funded millions of pounds of research, made scientific discoveries, and opened new avenues of research. They have made enormous strides in involving people with Parkinson’s in research and given hope to many with the condition.

Their innovative approach, which has led to collaborations with the world’s leading researchers and their inspirational work, combined with the active support of thousands of people living with Parkinson’s around the world, is bringing a cure for Parkinson’s closer.

The Cure Parkinson’s Team will be talking about how they work and hopes for this year.
