Coming Up: Research at QUT – Light4PD

Join us on August 19th at 10am as QUT will be updating us on their research into photoreceptor-directed light therapy in Parkinson’s disease.

Learn how QUT is working to determine the effect of a daily, short duration (30 min) artificial light exposure on sleep and movement in people with Parkinson’s disease.

In the long term, the researchers hope that their research will provide better treatment options of sleep disruption and consequently movement in all people with Parkinson’s disease.
