Calgary Parkinson Research Initiative (CaPRI)


CaPRI is an observational study over a five-year period. The purpose of this study is to create a Registry and Database that furthers our understanding about Parkinson’s disease (PD) and related movement disorders. The information collected will help doctors, researchers, and patients better understand how PD affects patients over time and also enable researchers to develop tests to diagnose and improve treatments for people with PD. CaPRI also aims to facilitate contact between ongoing research studies and participants who wish to contribute to the development and improvement of treatments for PD. Recently, CaPRI has partnered with the Canadian Open Parkinson Network (C-OPN) to expand its research potential Canada wide.
