Since the first Udall grant awarded to the University of Minnesota in 2016, the team here has been conducting outstanding work in bringing cutting-edge research to the clinical fore. Renewing this award allows another five years in which our team can make strides in treating the million-plus Americans diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.
