Neurologists Drs. Ali and Alex Rajput and their team are engaged in world recognized research into the causes and cures of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. In 2012, an international team that included Drs. Rajput discovered an abnormal gene in Saskatchewan Mennonite families that leads to Parkinson's disease.

"This discovery paves the way for further research to determine the nature of brain abnormalities which this gene defect produces," says Dr. Ali Rajput. "It also promises to help us find ways to detect Parkinson's disease early, and to develop drugs which will one day halt the progression of the disease.

The Dr. Ali Rajput Endowment for Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Research at Royal University Hospital supports innovative research and patient care for Saskatchewan.

The endowment was created with a generous gift of $1 million from an anonymous Saskatchewan donor, and it is managed by the RUH Foundation.

More than 40,000 people in Saskatchewan suffer from Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. Please help us find a cure for these devastating diseases.
