“By far the most innovative work we’re doing is also the riskiest—questioning the very definitions of neurodegenerative diseases created over many decades. Without the collective investment to date, we wouldn’t see the future as bright as we see it.
– Alberto Espay, MD, MSc, Director & Endowed Chair of the UC James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Professor of Neurology, UC College of Medicine

In 1817, Dr. James Parkinson first described a then-unknown frontier of medical science: people’s shared abnormalities of movement.

Today, Parkinson’s disease affects 10 million people worldwide. It has been incurable for nearly 200 years—but UC Health’s Alberto Espay, MD, wants to change that.

Helping people with this disease has been Dr. Espay’s longtime passion. As director and endowed chair for the UC James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders, Dr. Espay is accelerating internationally renowned, donor-supported Parkinson’s research right here in Cincinnati.

Through his discoveries, Dr. Espay is bringing new hope to Parkinson’s patients everywhere. He is redefining how the scientific world approaches this disease, and is paving the generation-defining path toward its first cure.

This is how breakthroughs happen.
