For Prospective Participants


The Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) is The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s flagship biomarkers study seeking to learn more about Parkinson’s disease. PPMI is made possible by the commitment of a diverse set of over 1,200 research volunteers.  With their help, PPMI has become a groundbreaking clinical study, helping pinpoint biological clues about Parkinson’s to help treat, diagnose and one day cure the disease.

Thank you for your interest in PPMI. As of January 2019, the enrollment goal has been met and formal recruitment is closed.
