Our research projects

Unlocking graphic

We are currently supporting over 50 groundbreaking Parkinson's research projects worth over £20million across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We're backing the best and brightest minds to unlock the ideas that will lead to new treatments, and one day a cure for Parkinson's.

Find out how and why we're striving for new and better treatments in years, rather than decades.

Diagnosis and monitoring 

At the moment there is no simple test to diagnose Parkinson's. Finding biomarkers- small changes in the body used to measure Parkinson's- could help improve diagnosis and allow us to monitor the condition over time

What causes Parkinson's?

We need to know how and why certain nerve cells in the brain in Parkinson's die in order to find a cure.

Towards a cure

We fund projects pursuing all avenues of research that work towards new and better treatments and a cure.

Improving everyday life 

We also fund research studies that focus on improving quality of life for people with the condition.
