Royal Institution research lecture

Hi everyone

‘Clinical trials and Parkinson’s: What does it take to find a cure?’

Parkinson’s UK is holding a free lecture at the world famous Royal Institution which will focus on clinical trials - how they are made possible, and their impact. We don't yet have any treatments that can slow, stop, or reverse the development of Parkinson's. The hunt is on to find new and better treatments, and ultimately a cure.

Date: Wednesday 20 November 2013

Time: 6.30 – 8 pm

Location: The Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4BS

Hear a worldwide perspective on the hurdles we are clearing and how, in order to find a cure for Parkinson's. You will also hear about a current exciting clinical trial made possible by recent medical and technical advances, and have the opportunity to put your questions to our panel of experts. Speakers will include:

  • Dr Richard Wade Martins, Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre
  • Dr Alan Whone, Frenchay Hospital
