Welcome to Rapsodi

Rapsodi is a pioneering study which uses the internet to find new ways of diagnosing Parkinson's earlier to develop life changing treatments.

If you are someone with Parkinson's disease, please visit our "sister" study PD Frontline. This is a new website designed specifically for those with a current diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. PD Frontline involves the same genetic tests as in Rapsodi, and aims to put people with Parkinson's at the forefront of research for clinical trials and other studies.

What is Rapsodi?

Research has shown us that we may be able to intervene many years before people develop Parkinson's to stop it in its tracks.

The GBA gene, which is carried by people with Gaucher disease, has been providing some unique insights into why people might develop Parkinson's disease.

Take part in the study

If you have Gaucher disease or are related to someone with Gaucher or Parkinson's disease we'd like to hear from you.
