In addition to the grants listed above, the London Movement Disorder Centre does collaborations with various industry partners to advance therapies for treating movement disorder patients. Most of these studies are investigator initiated trials and are designed by Dr. Jog and his research team. Industry sponsored clinical trials are also conducted at our research facility and are managed by our clinical trial coordinators.
