A big ‘Thank you’ to our partners

The GDNF Participant Group exists to ensure that patient voices are heard in the quest for a cure for Parkinson’s.  We are an entirely voluntary group made up of the people who participated in the Bristol trial, their families and friends.A group of strangers who were brought together by their overwhelming desire to destroy Parkinson’s now and for future generations.

We firmly believe that it is only by amalgamating the knowledge of science and the experience of patients that progress can be made towards successful treatments with clinical trials that prioritise and care for the welfare of the participants.

We are keen to form partnerships with like minded organisations and thank the following for their support :-

Funding Neuro

Pioneering treatments. Accelerating cures. Saving Lives.

We focus on making sure that the most promising research in neuroscience makes it out of the lab and to the patient. All too often great research doesn’t get translated into new treatments to benefit those who need them most.

Face2Face Parkinson’s was officially registered as a CIC in July 2020, but its process began in 2019 after Kevin Carter, the founder and director, took his redundancy from Parkinson’s UK following 13 years of working as a Parkinson’s Local Advisor in Bristol.
