Take part in our challenge
Tune in on Wednesday 5 May
Between 11am - 3am, we’ll be live-streaming our fundraise-athon. We’ll be talking to our amazing Parkinson’s research team in SITraN, and chatting to some of our esteemed alumni about their time in Sheffield and their careers since graduating. We’ll also be catching up with staff and students who have been fundraising during the Big Week.
Why is Parkinson's disease research so important?
Parkinson’s disease is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world but treatments for the disease haven’t progressed for over 50 years. Our world-class researchers are progressing treatments to combat the disease.
