EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has recently made available to the scientific community a unique collection aimed at presenting and fostering scientific discussion around the experimental models currently available to study Parkinson’s disease.

The database is continuously updated to reflect developments from the scientific literature and is a major effort by JPND to help researchers in the field. Together with an exhaustive description of each model and the studies that have already been done, there is a section for comments. You are welcome to add your comments to any of the models you have had experience with or to present alternative models.

We hope you will join this growing community of scientists. To consult the database and add your contributions, please visit: http://www.neurodegenerationresearch.eu/models-for-parkinsons-disease/.

If you’d like any additional information, do not hesitate to contact us directly at experimentalmodels@jpnd.eu.
