Research grant funding

Our wide range of research grants offers support to Parkinson's researchers at every stage of their careers.

We’re working with people affected by Parkinson’s, our research and clinical community, and institutions, to understand and mitigate the impact of coronavirus on the research we fund. Read more on our dedicated page.

Parkinson's UK is the largest member-led charitable funder of Parkinson's research in Europe. So far, we've invested more than £93 million in groundbreaking research.

TOWARDS A CURE AND IMPROVING LIFE

We are focused on finding new and better treatments for Parkinson's, and one day a cure. And we're investing in big ideas that will speed up the research process and deliver treatments to the people who need them faster. 

We're also keen to fund research that improves quality of life in the shorter term, particularly in our research priority areas.
