The Cure Parkinson’s Trust is delighted to receive a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation this month! This funding will be put towards the sub-study currently being run alongside the Simvastatin trial. This sub-study will use our newly created Parkinson's Clinical Trials Charter (developed by Parkinson’s Movement) to help us learn what motivates patients to become involved in clinical trials and what barriers there might be to their participation.

We hope the results of this study will help us to design and deliver streamlined and effective Parkinson’s clinical trials which genuinely reflect the needs of the participants. Many thanks to the Garfield Weston Foundation for their generous support of this incredibly important project.
