Our research projects

We've invested over £100m in vital research that's delivered groundbreaking discoveries, new medications and better care. By funding the right research into the most promising treatments, we get closer to a cure every day.

Parkinson's is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. There’s currently no cure. But as the largest European charitable funder of Parkinson's research, we're determined to change that. 

Research we've funded has delivered groundbreaking discoveries, new treatments and better care. We're leading the way to better treatments and together, we will find a cure.

Driven by people with Parkinson's

The Parkinson’s community is the driving force behind our research. We unite them with scientists to shape, steer and take part in research. So every breakthrough makes the biggest possible difference to their lives.

We carry out a rigorous evaluation process for our grants, involving volunteer reviewers affected by Parkinson's. We're committed to funding high-quality science that meets the needs of people with the condition.

We’re relentlessly chasing down a cure. But we’re not just focused on the future. We’re investing in research to improve life for people with Parkinson’s right now.

From the best ways to stay active, to tackling a wide range of symptoms, to understanding the true value of Parkinson’s nurses. Our research supports people to have more good days.
