Research Funding for MDC


In addition to the grants listed below, the London Movement Disorder Centre has collaborations with various industry partners to advance therapies for the treatment of neurological disorders. Having conducted more than 40 industry-sponsored clinical trials, the LondonMDC also actively conducts investigator-initiated trials that are designed by Dr. Jog and his clinical team. In recent years, these investigator studies have been generously supported by peer-reviewed industry grants from Allergan, Abbvie, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, and Merz.
