Research

We’re a people-powered movement. 

Together, we’re funding research that can give you hope for the future. Together we’re Parkinson’s UK. You shape Parkinson’s research. You transform lives. And we can find a cure.

If you’ve got Parkinson’s, you need better treatments now. Not in 10 years. Not in 20 years. That’s why we're pushing to deliver a new treatment by the end of 2024. So we invest more into Parkinson’s research than any other non-commercial funder in Europe.

Together, we’re the driving force behind 50 years of groundbreaking research.  We’re close to major breakthroughs. We need to keep pushing. Together we can find new treatments. And one day, a cure.

Discover how we've pushed the boundaries of science, invested in major trials and changed lives.
