The PREDICT-PD project was set up in 2010 and aims to identify people at risk of Parkinson's disease using the internet and known risk factors for the disease. We recruited over 1000 healthy older participants, and are stratifying their risk through simple tests administered via the internet or in their own homes.  The project is new and exciting and could provide real insight into how to diagnose Parkinson's disease earlier and develop treatments.
At the moment, we are following up participants in our pilot study that explores the risk factors for Parkinson's. For study information click here.
