Clinical Research

Through clinical research, we are helping to advance new knowledge that will help doctors and medical scientists understand the causes of movement disorders and find new and effective treatments. BMC is one of only nine hospitals in the country - and the only hospital in Boston - to be designated by the American Parkinson's Disease Association as a Center for Advanced Research.

Our accomplished neurological staff includes physicians who serve on the prestigious American Parkinson's Disease Association Scientific Advisory Board. In addition to specialized clinical care, individuals may choose to participate in the latest clinical trials investigating new medications and therapies. For more information on these trials, please visit the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center website, hosted by Boston University.
