The Parkinson’s Centre at ECU, ParkC, brings together not-for-profit community groups and academic staff from multiple disciplines and institutions (both locally and internationally) that have a dedicated interest in Parkinson’s and expertise in health and aging research. We believe that this cohesive and holistic approach will result in the best outcome for people with Parkinson’s. Our aspiration is for ParkC research to contribute towards the discovery of a cure for Parkinson’s and to significantly contribute to the wellbeing and health of people with Parkinson’s.
ParkC research projects explore the development of neuro-protective/restorative treatment approaches, profiling cognitive and affective deficits in Parkinson’s disease and development and assessment of non-parmacological treatment strategies, to reduce the motor and non-motor symptoms of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease.

We need you
The ParkC Heterogeneity Study aims to identify subtypes of Parkinson’s in the hope that treatments and interventions can be tailored to meet the needs of individuals with Parkinson’s. We are currently looking for people with Parkinson’s to participate in our study.
Young Onset Group
The Young Onset Group is a support group for people with Parkinson’s who were diagnosed before the age of 55. This dynamic, positive, group first met in February 2006 and have actively supported ParkC research. The YOGs have established a scholarship to help support a student undertaking research into Parkinson’s.
