Canadian Open Parkinson Network

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on November 28, 2018 in Announcements

Parkinson Canada together with Brain Canada are pleased to announce the creation of the Canadian Open Parkinson Network (C-OPN). The $2 million Platform Grant is intended to support the initial development and maintenance of a large-scale research network that is built on the foundation of the established and successful Quebec Parkinson Network (QPN). 

The Canadian Open Parkinson Network will include:

  • a patient registry with comprehensive clinical information
  • a database with information from diagnostics, anatomical and functional measurements
  • a biobank with patient biomaterials such as blood samples and DNA for genetic studies

C-OPN will build capacity and increase awareness among all levels of government, healthcare professionals, the research community, health charities and the general public.
