Become a member of GEoPD

GEoPD is a global consortium of researchers dedicated to promoting education, scientific research and translational development in Parkinson’s disease. The consortium has been operating since 2004, and has an active membership from more than 60 sites on six continents. The GEoPD is organized into five cores.

These cores provide a mechanism whereby active global site investigators may share their expertise, resources and reagents. The consortium’s mission is to promote multi-investigator research projects throughout the year. Annual Meetings offer a valuable forum for consortium members to discuss unpublished data and ideas, highlight research questions or needs and identify global opportunities for partnership.

New collaboration

We are proud to announce a collaboration between GEoPD and Frontiers in Neurology which has resulted in a Research Topic entitled "Celebrating the Diversity of Genetic Research to Dissect the Pathogenesis of Parkinson's Disease".
