MOVING SCIENCE FORWARD
MultiPark is a strategic research area funded by the Swedish Government. The aim of MultiPark is to radically improve life for people with Parkinson’s disease. In a multidisciplinary mobilization neuroscientists are cooperating with researchers from nanotechnology, chemistry, physics and computer science. A union between experimental and clinical science is at the core of the overarching MultiPark vision – improving the quality of life for people with Parkinson's.
