About this Event

THE LIVE EVENT HAS NOW FINISHED. FOR ON-DEMAND ACCESS PLEASE CONTACT THE TEAM AT: researchevents@parkinsons.org.uk

The 2020 Parkinson’s UK Research Conference is an entirely online, CPD accredited meeting.

Keynote lectures will be delivered live from around the world, symposia will be available on-demand and downloadable for 30 days after the event, and, crucially, poster presentations and networking will take place throughout.

The sharing of data and the development of new treatments will not wait, and neither will we. We hope you will join us.
