Gary’s interest is strongly focused on current clinical drug research for new interventional treatments. He works with prominent Foundations, research and fundraising organizations and biotech pharmaceutical companies. He has co-authored numerous articles and abstracts on Parkinson’s research which have appeared in well-known journals, publications and conferences.  Gary is a co-author of the annual review “Parkinson’s Disease Drug Therapies in the Clinical Trial Pipeline,” published in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease.

He was featured in the Foundation's “Navigating Clinical Trials” guide. Gary shares:

“Never doubt that everyday people like you and me are the most important part of the complex and expensive drug development process. Don’t believe me? Ask a scientist. They’ll tell you: All the research funding in the world doesn’t matter without the only people who can answer the question of whether the science is helping anyone — those living with the disease.”
