The Quebec Parkinson Network’s main mission is to join forces. It is a movement to promote multidisciplinary research on Parkinson’s disease. This gathering covers three essential elements for the conduct of large-scale research projects:

  1. Gathering of Quebec’s researchers and clinicians who work on Parkinson’s disease
  2. Gathering of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease across the province of Quebec who wish to support and take part in research
  3. Gathering of data allowing the creation of three distinct databases:
    •  Patient registry
    •  Clinical, neuroimaging, neuropsychological and sleep databases
    •  Biobank
