Parkinson's Research and Clinical Trials
The following is a list of Parkinson's Research and/or Clinical Trials being conducted in the Georgetown area. Many of these trials and research studies do not involve medications and are just question/answer research. Always check with your doctor before changing currently prescribed medications.
Parkinson’s Research and you get paid $150 - This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in research and want their voices to be heard! It is an online interview for patients and caregivers of those diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. LaGrippe Research, a market research firm specializing in healthcare needs your feedback and opinions on topics related to Parkinson’s Disease. All information gathered will be used for research purposes only and will not be shared with anyone outside the research team. This is not a clinical trial and at no point will we sell anyone anything.

You can fill out our preliminary questions to participate online here:
Lewy Body Disease Clinical Trial - Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) can cause a person to experience hallucinations. The DELPHIA study is currently enrolling people into their study to determine if an investigational drug might improve cognitive function and reduce visual hallucinations in people with DLB.

Parkinson’s Foundation Launches First-of-its-Kind Genetic Study - Launched a new trailblazing genetics study, called PD GENEration: Mapping the Future of Parkinson’s Disease. This first-of-its kind national initiative offers FREE genetic testing for common Parkinson’s disease (PD) related genes and genetic counseling. Learn more: https://www.parkinson.org/pdgeneration
Texas State “Yoga” Research Opportunity - Students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Texas State University in Round Rock would like to invite you to participate in a research study. Their goal is to study the effects that yoga may have on people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Yoga is a gentle form of exercise that involves putting your body into a position and holding that position for a short amount of time. The study will require participants in the intervention group to attend 2 testing sessions, a yoga class, and participate in a home yoga program 2 times per week for 8 weeks. Participants in the control group will attend 2 testing sessions and will be given the yoga program after the study is over. There is screening criteria to participate, please contact Catherine Madsen 512-638-2843 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Parkinson’s VOICE Research - Steven Darroh is a speech-language pathologist interested in working with voice issues in people with Parkinson’s Disease. He would like to interview some people with Parkinson’s, either over the phone or in person. The interview will likely last between 5 and 10 minutes, and will consist of a set of standardized questions. He is seeking to “hone in” on the biggest issues facing people with PD from a speech pathology standpoint. Please reach out to Steven, if you’re interested by email, call, or text. Steven Darroh, email@example.com 713-899-6750
Healthy Aging Research - Researchers from Texas A&M University are inviting those who are 65 years or older (up to 2 participants per household) to take part in a survey on healthy aging. The survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete, and you will be offered $10 gift card. If you have any questions, please contact the study director, Sinan Zhong, at 979-255-6755 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fox Foundation and 23andMe Launch Data Platform Fox DEN to Help Accelerate Research Efforts - The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) and 23andMe announced the launch of a data and analytics resource for researchers, based on patient experiences, that aims to improve clinical trial design and subsequently, therapies for Parkinson’s. Called the Fox Insight Data Exploration Network (Fox DEN), it’s the platform for Fox Insight, an online, MJFF-sponsored clinical study about health-related experiences from volunteers with and without Parkinson’s disease. Fox DEN features patient reported outcomes, de-identified (for privacy) genetic data, and information exploration tools from what’s known as the most expansive cohort in Parkinson’s investigations. click on this link to learn more: Fox Foundation and 23andMe Launch Data Platform Fox DEN to Help Accelerate Research Efforts
More Michael J Fox Foundation Clinical Trials - The Fox Trial Finder is an online clinical trial matching tool created by The Michael J. Fox Foundation to make it easier for Parkinson's patients and their loved ones to participate in Parkinson's research.
