The mission of the Pacific Parkinson Research Centre (PPRC) is to act as a Centre of Excellence for diagnosis and management of Parkinson's Disease (PD) and other related disorders and to conduct a strong research program that spans preclinical, clinical and population studies.

We offer input from a variety of disciplines – neurology, nursing, physiotherapy and social work.



There is also ample opportunity to participate in research – PET and MRI, clinical trials of medications and genetic studies.
