Welcome to the Pacific Udall Center

Welcome to the Pacific Udall Center (formerly PANUC), one of nine Morris K. Udall Centers of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease Research. Udall Centers are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct research into the cause(s) of Parkinson’s disease and to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. The Pacific Udall Center is a collaboration among Stanford University, the University of Washington, the VA Puget Sound Health Care System, Oregon Health & Science University, and the Portland VA Medical Center. This multidisciplinary program brings together academic, clinical, and research experts in the fields of movement disorders, memory disorders, and brain aging to study cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease.

Our Center began in 2009 as the Pacific Northwest Udall Center (PANUC) to serve Washington and Oregon, and in 2016 expanded to include Stanford University and the surrounding area.
