Title:  Parkinson’s disease: Shifting the focus off genetics onto environmental factors
Project Number or ID:   S0236224
Start and End Date:         04/09/2017 to 04/09/2019
PhD Candidate:                 Ms Nicole Ball
Supervisor:                         Dr Shaneel Chandra, Dr James Chapman, Dr Wei-Peng Teo
Ethics Approval:               Central Queensland University Ethics Committee, approval number 21055

As part of a Master’s project, we are undertaking research into the role in which environmental factors may play in Parkinson’s disease. Recent studies suggest rural living may increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease due to specific toxins present within these locations. Several environmental contaminants have been identified for this study and we will be investigating these within an Australian context. The survey will help guide our research project by identifying possible chemicals present in the environment linked to Parkinson’s disease.

All Australian residents are invited to complete our online survey. The survey will take around 10 – 20 minutes of your time. Your participation would be greatly appreciated!
