Better treatments, faster

We fund research to accelerate the development and testing of promising new Parkinson's treatments.

We drive forward drug discovery

We're seeking a breakthrough treatment that can stop, slow down or reverse Parkinson's symptoms – something no existing treatment can do.

About our research

We tackle critical road blocks in the drug development process.

We're filling in the gaps and investing in big ideas so that we can get better treatments to the people who need them, faster.

We're Europe's largest charitable funder of Parkinson's research – with more than £80million so far invested in groundbreaking projects.

Funding promising drugs

We fund research to develop life-changing new treatments.

Exploring ideas that show great promise but might be overlooked without our support.

We've stepped up to provide the funding and expertise to advance these carefully selected projects.

A unique approach that works

We were the major funder of a clinical trial of GDNF – a treatment with exciting potential to transform life for people with Parkinson’s.

Without our support, the trial would not have been possible.

It's vital that we invest in more research to bring forward the day when we find a cure for Parkinson's.

Drug treatments

There are many different drugs prescribed for Parkinson's, so your medication will be based on what suits you as an individual.
