Clinical research is defined as all medical research performed on humans. It aims to improve the knowledge of diseases in order to improve medical care for the patients. The Luxembourg Parkinson’s Study is one of the largest clinical research studies in Luxembourg. By investigating 800 Parkinson’s patients and control subjects each, our researchers aim to find new ways for earlier diagnosis and better treatment for Parkinson’s disease.

On 12 August 2019, a new Flying Team location was inaugurated, at the premises of Ketterthill Echternach, to allow people from the East of the country or Germany to take part in the Luxembourg Parkinson’s study closer to their home.
