Clinical Research Forum

Saturday 03 May 2014, 08:30am - 12:30pm

Learn more about the state of Parkinson’s research today, the different types of trials and how your loved ones can participate. Speak with some of the most active Principal Investigators in Colorado about their research. Ask questions of Research Coordinators about their ongoing trials. Talk to others who have participated in trials about their experiences. Decide to participate. Make a difference.Clinical trials and studies play a critical role in the development of new and better medicines. Yet, enrollment of patients is one of the top challenges clinical researchers face. Slow and/or low enrollment hinders the research process and deters potential funders from investing in research. Many clinical trials fail to recruit a single subject. Only one in 100 people with Parkinson’s takes part in a trial. We can do better.
