Explore our research

We're adopting a radical new approach to speed up the process of finding better treatments for Parkinson's and delivering them to people faster.

NEW AND BETTER TREATMENTS, FASTER

As the largest charity funder of Parkinson's research in Europe, we've invested over £85million in developing treatments and a cure. And today, new treatments are within our grasp.

Since the start of our strategic period in 2015, we've set up initiatives to tackle the critical roadblocks, fill the gaps and invest in big ideas that will speed up the process and deliver treatments to the people who need them, faster.

 

Our research vision

We're speeding up every stage of the research pipeline.

Discover how our research initiatives are delivering new and better treatments faster.

UNLOCKING SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES

Through our research projects, we're backing the best and brightest minds to unlock the ideas that will lead to new treatments, and one day a cure. Discover all our research grants.

FAST-TRACKING BETTER TREATMENTS

Our Parkinson's Virtual Biotech is investing in the best ideas, wherever they come from, and rapidly turning them into treatments that can be tested and progressed. Find out about the latest drug discovery projects.

IMPROVING CLINICAL TRIALS

We believe clinical trials can work better so we're bringing the right people together with the Critical Path for Parkinson's to make trials faster, cheaper and more likely to succeed. Read the latest from Critical Path for Parkinson's.

REPURPOSING APPROVED TREATMENTS

We're taking the fastest route to better treatments by tracking down drugs already approved and in use for other conditions which have untapped potential for Parkinson's. ​​​​​​​Explore the latest news about repurposed medicines.
