About This Site

"General Information" explains a little about the purpose and day-to-day operation of the tissue bank. This is where to find out about upcoming events and travelling to the tissue bank. There is also a collection of links to other sites that you may find useful. (If you wish to jump directly to any of these pages, please use the links to the left.) "Information for Donors" is aimed at both existing and prospective donors. The information request forms, together with details of how to sign up, may be found here. Forms for requesting tissue for research purposes may be found under "Information for Researchers". The section about Parkinson's disease is aimed primarily at laypeople and includes a glossary of terms. Finally, the Site Index contains links to every page within the site, organised by category.
