Cure Parkinson's Research Grant Funding Programme for Researchers Worldwide

Cure Parkinson's Research Grant Funding Programme for Researchers Worldwide

This programme primarily funds preclinical and clinical research focused on slowing, stopping, or reversing Parkinson’s. We do not fund research which is directed at symptomatic relief.

The Funding Remit

For preclinical research, we fund grants up to £250,000 (GBP) and prioritise projects that are likely to lead to clinical trials in people with Parkinson’s within 5 years.

For clinical research, we fund clinical trials and sub-studies of trials in people with Parkinson’s. The grant amount is flexible but please contact us ahead of submission if you are thinking of applying for a clinical trial.

We fund internationally and accept applications from academics and commercial entities. However, the costs in commercial applications should be equivalent to academic costs.

Our full Research Strategy provides more information on the types of research we fund, our funding priorities and how we provide funding.

Please read through the resources below before applying for funding. If you have any questions regarding whether your project fits our narrow remit, please contact our Research Manager, Rosie Fuest.

The Application Process

If the proposed project falls within Cure Parkinson’s scope for funding, it will be considered by our independent research committee, which meets on a quarterly basis.

At each meeting, the committee discuss new applications and decide whether they should be evaluated further. If they decide that an application should be considered for funding, the application
will be sent for external peer review.

The feedback from these expert reviews will be discussed at the next research committee meeting, and a recommendation on whether to fund the project will be made for the Cure Parkinson’s trustees to consider. For successful applicants, the process takes approximately three months but can take longer, particularly for clinical trials where an iterative approach may apply.

All successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by the chair of the research committee and/or suitable senior Cure Parkinson’s representative.

How to Apply for Funding

Before applying, please read our information for grant applicants and standard grant contract (below) for further guidance on the application process, the criteria used during the research committee assessment and the usual terms and conditions for Cure Parkinson’s grant funding. Please note, these terms may alter slightly for clinical trials or projects involving commercial entities.
