NIH supports Parkinson's research with online collaboration

Tools

In the latest push to better predict, diagnose and monitor Parkinson's disease, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health, is launching a new online collaborative resource that will support data-sharing in an effort to find biomarkers for the disease. The Parkinson's Disease Biomarkers Program is meant to bring together multiple stakeholders interested in research and discovery that will advance diagnostic and progression biomarkers for Parkinson's. According to NINDS, the collaborative will "support efforts to invent new technologies and analysis tools for biomarker discovery, to identify and validate biomarkers in patients, and to share biomarker data and resources across the Parkinson's community."
