May 26, 2015

News, Research

The Virginia Commonwealth University Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center is serving as a research site for an observational research project that aims to learn more about the causes of primary dystonia and how the symptoms may progress over time.
 
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and diagnosed with a primary dystonia to be eligible to participate.
 
This project is sponsored by the Dystonia Coalition, an international collaboration of medical researchers and patient advocacy groups working to advance the pace of research in the dystonias to find better treatments and a cure.
 
Dystonia is a disorder involving excessive involuntary contraction of muscles with repetitive and patterned movements.
 
For more information or to volunteer, please contact Ginger Norris at vwnorris@vcu.edu or (804) 662-5307.
