PenPRiG –
The Peninsula Parkinson’s Interest Group

The aim of PenPRiG is to increase participation in clinical research into Parkinson’s Disease by people living and/or working in the South West Peninsula. At the moment we have representatives for Cornwall and Devon.

We arrange for researchers to talk about their work, and we encourage local research initiatives.

This website presents information about why you should participate in research,  and where and how you can do so. We aim to explain the opportunities in ordinary language.

The PenPRiG Facebook Group is our news channel and the best place for feedback and comments.

PenPRiG is an independent team of volunteers, The Steering Group is Chairman Ulli Funken, Secretary Sue Whipps, Treasurer Chris Maycock and Devon Representatives Nigel Coleman and Andrew Leach. We are an Unincorporated Association.

We appreciate the support of the organisations and individuals that are helping us to achieve our aims.

If you access this website or the Facebook Group, you do so on our understanding that you are aware of and will abide by our terms and conditions.
