PDS shortlisted for awards night
16th February 2009

The Parkinson's Disease Society (PDS) has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards by the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), which rewards the best science communications practices in the country.

Recognising the important role of medical research charities which address the engagement, involvement and public understanding of science, the AMRC looks at the practices of the 115 charities under its wing.

The two awards it has been lined up for are the Research Report for Non-Expert Audience in its twice-yearly publication Progress, as well as the Science Reportage in Annual Report or Review.

Commenting on the nominations, PDS director of research and development Dr Keiran Breen said: "We are thrilled to be nominated for these awards, and it emphasises the commitment that the Society has to keeping people informed about the research that we fund and what it means for people with Parkinson's."

The PDS is carrying on the good work of Dr James Parkinson, who worked on identifying the condition until his death in 1824.
