This week we raise awareness of Parkinson's Disease and related disorders with a unique video insight into the work of the Wade-Martins Group.

This week DPAG is marking World Parkinson's Day, which takes place on Thursday 11 April 2019, with an inside look into the Wade-Martins Laboratory.

The Wade-Martins Group conducts critical research into several neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease and Friedreich's Ataxia, with the aim to understand the molecular mechanisms of these disorders and help develop new treatments.

This video is narrated by Professor Richard Wade-Martins, with contributions from Charmaine Lang, Dayne Beccano-Kelly, Peter Kilfeather, Phillippa Carling, Gabriela Vilema Enriquez and former members of the team, Gabriele Corda, Rebecca Wallings and Marta Cherubini.
