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):

Bioinformatics core

Epidemiology and Statistics core

Epidemiology & Statistics

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Annual Meetings offer a valuable forum for consortium members to discuss unpublished data and ideas, highlight research questions or needs and identify global opportunities for partnership.
