Movement Disorders Center Biorepository

Clinical Trial Investigator: Danny Bega, MD

Aim: The Movement Disorder Center Biorepository (MDC-Biorepository) is a registry aimed to collect biologic and clinical information, such as blood and tissue samples, and family and medical histories from patients diagnosed with a movement disorder. This information is carefully maintained so it can be studied repeatedly in the future. The purpose of studying materials from the registry is to identify factors that either cause these neurologic conditions or increase one’s risk for developing them. Samples collected for this biorepository include a blood sample and a skin biopsy. Participants may choose to donate one or both samples.
