Portal:The Science Behind Parkinson's/For Researchers
Lay people who are keen to find out as much as they can about progress in Parkinson's research clearly depend on the work of the scientific community.
This wiki has been started by enthusiastic lay people but would benefit immeasurably from the participation of researchers active in the field.
You can see what has already been put together on current Parkinson's research progress
Already a lot of work has been put into ferreting out information from the specialist research literature and explaining highlights of the progress made in recent years.
There is also Section 2 - An Introduction to Parkinson's Science which, as the title implies, is aimed at helping people new to Parkinson's to learn about some of the basic concepts of the science underlying the condition.
Why do we want professional researchers on board?

We are looking to build up a community of contributors to this wiki project because we want to create a globally accessible resource for people who, however reluctantly, have joined the Parkinson's Club.
Section 1: Progress and Prospects in Parkinson's Research is the 'guts' of the wiki. It is where we want to summarise where Parkinson's research has led so far.
It is hard work for a lay person to search through the scientific literature pulling out all the most appropriate relevant references. But researchers like yourself have these at your fingertips because they are a vital component of every one of your published papers.
You are invited to join us! What can we achieve together?
