Pacific Parkinson’s Research Institute

Founded in 1991, Pacific Parkinson’s Research Institute (PPRI) was formed with an eye firmly on a future without Parkinson’s.

PPRI is a “no frills” volunteer organization focused on funding research into the causes, complications, treatments and cure of Parkinson’s disease.

PPRI funds research exclusively at Pacific Parkinson’s Research Centre (PPRC) a leading clinical research facility located at the University of British Columbia. This enables us to have the greatest impact in making promising projects happen. Our support funds the full-time employment and research projects of top Parkinson’s research scientists and has provided us with the opportunity to support scientists in further pursuing key areas of study.
