Dandenong Neurology and Specialists Group regularly recruits members of the community to participate in research and clinical trials. We are always looking for volunteers (both healthy and Parkinson’s patients). You can make a difference by assisting with the research of new methods and interventions to improve our understanding of various disorders. Most of our research projects are in collaboration with RMIT or Monash University where A/Prof S Raghav holds adjunct positions.
