Individuals with parkinsonism needed for a research study

Eligible individuals who are at least 40 years old are needed to participate in a research study at Johns Hopkins at Green Spring Station in Lutherville, Md. This study aims to investigate the differences in blood, urine, and CSF between people with Parkinson's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, and healthy volunteers. Participants must be native English speakers who have been clinically diagnosed with parkinsonism by a doctor.

Participants will be asked to complete memory questionnaires, have biospecimen collections, and undergo a brief exam by the study neurologist, Dr. Alexander Pantelyat. The study involves a one-day visit, annually for two years, and participants are compensated $150 each visit. All meals and travel expenses are covered by the study.
