The Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) wouldn’t be where it is today without dedicated study volunteers like you. Whether you're new to the study or you've been with us for years, your participation is valued.
Here we share resources for PPMI participants. Check out the latest news coming out of the study and read a scientific update for outcomes made possible through your contributions. Watch a video from Michael J. Fox sharing his thanks for your participation. Then download a toolkit to help spread the word about the study.
Questions about PPMI and your role? If you are enrolled at a site, speak to your study coordinator. If you are enrolled online, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
