MyPaTH Story Booth – COVID-19 Stories
Participants are invited to share how they are maintaining their health during the coronavirus pandemic, or to share what it is like being ill with COVID-19 and/or caring for a loved one who is ill with COVID-19. Participation in this research study involves one 45-minute session that takes place over the phone. Eligible participants must be able to read and understand English.
Movement Disorders Research Registry
Do you have a movement disorder? If so, you may be able to participate in the Movement Disorders Registry. This registry is a list of individuals who are interested in being contacted about future research studies.
Parkinson's Disease and Lewy Body Disease Imaging Study - Parkinson's with Dementia or Lewy Body Diagnosis
Are you 40 to 85 years old? Are you diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease with Dementia or Lewy Body Disease (Dementia with Lewy Bodies)? You may be eligible for a research study on a new brain imaging marker with potential to aid in early detection and the progression of Parkinson’s Disease and Lewy Body Disease. Compensation provided.
The Luma Study
Were you diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease within the last 2 years? You may be eligible for a research study evaluating the safety and efficacy of a study drug, as compared to a placebo, to see if it may delay the progression of Parkinson’s disease in people who are in the early stage of their condition.
All of Us Pennsylvania Research Program
All of Us wants at least one million people to join. Your participation can help shape the future of health for generations to come. People who join will share information. This might be about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. It might also be about family history and genes. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
The Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI)
Were you diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) in the last two years and are not currently taking standard PD medications? You may be able to participate in a research study to help better understand how Parkinson’s disease progresses over time. Study participation involves having physical exams, undergoing brain scans, and providing biological samples. Compensation is provided.
Brain Connections for Arm Movement after Stroke
Are you over 21 and have you had a stroke? You may be able to participate in a research study that hopes to learn how different brain areas control movement before and after stroke and when these brain areas are most sensitive to stimulation.
Brain Development Research Study – Ages 18-26
Are you a healthy 18-26 year old? You may be able to participate in a study to understand how our brain changes as we develop into adults. This study involves completing questionnaires, playing computer games, and undergoing brain and EEG scans. Compensation is provided.
Spinal Cord Stimulation for the treatment of motor deficits in people with Spinal Muscular Atrophy
Are you affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy? You may be able to participate in a research study using spinal cord stimulation (SCS), an approved clinical therapy for pain syndromes that do not respond to drugs. Unexpectedly, SCS has shown the ability to promote the recovery of leg motor function in people with complete motor paralysis in consequence of spinal cord injury years after injury.
SPARX3: Study in Parkinson Disease of Exercise Phase 3 Clinical Trial
Are you 40-80 years old and have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) within the past 3 years? You may be able to participate in a study looking at how exercise affects the progression of PD symptoms. Eligible participants are not taking medication for PD symptoms. Study participation involves engaging in exercise 4 times/week for 18 months. Compensation is provided for evaluation visits.
Dementia with Lewy Bodies Consortium (DLBC)
Do you have diagnosed or suspected dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), mild cognitive impairment that may progress to DLB, or Parkinson’s disease dementia? If so, you may be able to participate in a research study to help learn more about DLB and find better ways to identify and treat the disease in the future. Compensation is provided.
