  • Environmental Risk Factors, 2021
    Nationwide Geographic Cluster Analysis of Incident Parkinson’s Disease

    Study Rationale:
    The causes of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are mostly unknown, but non-genetic factors, such as environmental exposures during one’s lifetime, probably affect whether a person develops PD...

  • Environmental Risk Factors, 2021
    Exposure to Ambient Air Pollution and Risk of Parkinson’s Disease

    Study Rationale:
    Ambient (outdoor) air pollution can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and death. Some evidence links ambient air pollution to higher risk of Parkinson’s disease. But current...

  • Priority Biology, 2021
    Efficacy of PRKN Gene Delivery toward Mitigation of Alpha-synuclein-induced Degeneration

    Study Rationale:
    Genetic mutations that cause the functional loss of the PRKN gene and its corresponding protein, parkin, can cause early-onset Parkinson’s disease (PD). Regardless of the cause...

  • Therapeutic Pipeline Program, 2021
    Understand Me for Life: An Intelligibility App for Parkinson's Disease

    Study Rationale:
    Approximately 90% of people with Parkinson’s develop speech and language problems over the course of the disease, and more than half of these speakers experience problems with...

  • Research Grant, 2021
    Parkinson’s Disease Patient Report of Problems (PD-PROP) Curation

    Study Rationale:
    What people with Parkinson’s feel and experience about their disease, and how it affects their lives, is of paramount importance to their care and participation in research. The...

  • Priority Biology, 2021
    Studying the Properties of Alpha-Synuclein Aggregates Amplified from Human Cerebrospinal Fluid

    Study Rationale:
    Aggregates of the protein alpha-synuclein, which accumulate in the brains of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), can also be detected in biofluids like cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)...
