- Contribute to the advancement of new knowledge through basic and clinical research in collaboration with other disciplines to determine the cause, and study new treatments in movement disorders.
- To provide education, support, and awareness to patients, families, healthcare providers, and the community at large on Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
