GEoPD is a global consortium of researchers dedicated to promoting education, scientific research and translational development in Parkinson’s disease.
The consortium has been operating since 2004, and has an active membership from more than 60 sites on 6 continents. The GEoPD is organized by five Cores (Click each heading to review core mandates):
These Cores provide a mechanism whereby active global site investigators may share their expertise, resources and reagents. The consortium’s mission is to promote multi-investigator research projects throughout the year.
Annual Meetings offer a valuable forum for consortium members to discuss unpublished data and ideas, highlight research questions or needs and identify global opportunities for partnership.
11th Annual Meeting

The 10th Annual Meeting of GEoPD was hosted by Dr. Nobutaka Hattori.
ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN AND COGNITION IN PD
Next-generation sequence analysis of alpha-synuclein (SNCA) in Parkinson disease will test whether genetic variability is associated with motor, cognitive and neuropsychiatric disturbances, and whether it may influence susceptibility and/or decline.
