Types of grant

Our wide range of research grants offer support to scientists researching Parkinson's at every stage of their careers.

Parkinson's UK is the largest member-led charitable funder of Parkinson's research in Europe.

We support research focused on delivering new and better treatments for Parkinson's, and one day a cure. 

We're also keen to support research that improves quality of life in the shorter term - see our research priorities for improving everyday life.
