Clinical Research at the Chase Family Movement Disorders Center

The Chase Family Movement Disorders Center offers opportunities for active participation in cutting edge research in the field of Parkinson disease, Dystonia, Huntington disease, Essential Tremor and other Movement Disorders through clinical trials.

These studies are conducted in collaboration with other movement disorders specialists throughout North America and Europe. We have several ongoing clinical research studies as noted below, and all eligible patients have the option to participate in any of these clinical trials.

We are also involved in mentoring students, providers and physicians-in-training who will serve the community in the future as neurologists, researchers, or primary care clinicians.
