Research abstract in English

The Monument Discovery Award ultimately aims to find a cure for Parkinson’s – to develop treatments that allow everyone to live free from the symptoms of the condition. Diagnosing Parkinson’s before the earliest movement symptoms appear, combined with more effective treatments that tackle the root causes of nerve cell death, will be crucial steps towards a cure. The themes are: Theme 1: What happens inside the nerve cells that die in Parkinson’s? Theme 2: Better animal models that truly reflect Parkinson’s Theme 3: Diagnosing Parkinson’s earlier – before the symptoms develop
