Through their family charity, the Charros Foundation, Ian and Rosemary Mottershead donated $1.3 million to fund critical research into Parkinson’s Disease.

The Motttershead’s gift will fully fund a new world-class project into non-invasive electrical stimulation to lessen Parkinson’s symptoms that are not easily dealt with by medication. The study will  look at developing a “pace-maker like device” that is attached to the outside of the head that will improve motor performance, lessen apathy, decrease tremors and help lessen falls.
The second project ($177,770) will be used establish a comprehensive clinical database that can be interfaced with ongoing genetic studies that are being conducted at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health (DMCBH).
