We are designing a new type of research trial for Parkinson’s disease. We are looking for individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds, with experience of a chronic health condition to form a Community Advisory Group (CAG). The Group’s input will be vital in helping us to design a trial that is inclusive and accessible for a wider participant population. The panel will meet remotely for discussions and may be asked to complete online surveys or provide feedback on documents.

The trial will test treatments that may be able to slow or stop Parkinson’s. Currently this is still in the design stage, and we aim to open the trial in June 2024.
The EJS ACT-PD Initiative is co-led by the University College London and the University of Plymouth. Members include experts in complex research trial
