Cohort study grants

Long-term, observational cohort studies are supported through our specialist cohort study grants and reviewed by our Cohort Studies Council.


Applications for new cohort studies may be submitted at any time and are assessed by the Cohort Studies Council after input has been sought from the Parkinson's Portfolio Development Group.

To request an application form, please contact us at [email protected].

If your study is an add-on to a current cohort study, you may consider funding through another type of grant.


Grants are tenable only at a United Kingdom university, NHS Trust, statutory social care organisation or other research institution.

Principal applicants should hold employment contracts that extend beyond the period of the grant.

Co-applicants and collaborators may be based at institutions outside the UK or at pharmaceutical or biotech companies.
