23 and Me
The 23andMe Parkinson Research Study allows for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease to submit their saliva samples for the research project. In doing that participants will also have access to genetic health reports, genetic ancestry profile and an online discussion group. Being involved in the study will help advance Parkinson’s Disease research as it can help researchers understand how exactly certain genes affect Parkinson’s onset, which can lead to novel Parkinson’s treatments.
