OPDC is celebrating after Parkinson’s UK awarded £6M to the cutting-edge research programme led by Richard Wade-Martins and Michele Hu.
"In the last five years we’ve made remarkable progress. We’ve built a study integrating work in the clinic and the laboratory like nowhere else in the world. Alongside this, our program to change cells from patients’ skin into brain cells using cutting-edge stem cell technology has allowed us to gain completely new insights about Parkinson’s and how it develops. We’re delighted the new funding from Parkinson’s UK will secure the future of this and other vital projects.” OPDC lead researcher, Richard-Wade Martins
