Welcome to the WPC 2022 Science Ambassador Application!


WPC Science Ambassadors are basic and clinical scientists dedicated to serving the Parkinson’s community from around the world who have attended a past WPC. We are looking for up to 10 Ambassadors to work with us as we plan for the 6th World Parkinson Congress (WPC 2022) to take place in Barcelona, Spain from June 7-10, 2022. The role requires personal knowledge of the WPC and the WPC experience. It will require periodic conference calls and possibly speaking to groups about the WPC and why they should attend. WPC Science Ambassadors may be asked to help “translate” science to the community leading up to the WPC or even during the WPC.

We encourage basic scientists and clinical scientists working in the Parkinson’s space to apply. What we require for our WPC Science Ambassadors is a passion for helping the Parkinson’s community find answers to their questions and to bring more scientists together with the PD community in a positive and impactful way. 

Thank you for your consideration.
