Since arriving at the University of Minnesota in 1996 Dr. Tuite has directed more than 30 clinical trials related to Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders. In addition to evaluating new therapies, his interests include the development of novel brain MRI and nuclear imaging tests that may aid in the diagnosis of PD, increase out understanding of the disease, and monitor the effects of treatment. Dr. Tuite is also interested in rehabilitation and in developing methods to monitor and improve movements in people with PD.

Dr. Tuite is the site co-investigator of an M.J. Fox study entitled BIOFIND that is aiding in the pursuit of a biomarker that can be used in diagnosing and tracking the course of PD.
