Investigational Treatments for Movement Disorders

At the University of Chicago Medicine, our patients are the first to benefit from leading research to find better treatments for movement disorders. We are designated as a Center for Advanced Research by the American Parkinson Disease Association for our excellence in state-of-the-art patient care and quest to find improved therapies through high-level research.

Our physicians are investigating movement disorders at the molecular level to identify precise causes of these diseases. They conduct clinical trials, regularly publish findings and serve as editors and on editorial boards of respected medical journals.

Sharing knowledge with institutions throughout the world, our physician-scientists work with grant-funded studies, including support from the National Institutes of Health, Michael J. Fox Foundation, and Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, among other organizations.
