Research Dollars at Work
The Parkinson Alliance is committed to raising funds for the most promising and scientifically validated Parkinson’s disease research programs. We award grants to the major U.S. 501 (c) (3) Parkinson’s organizations and research institutions identified by our staff according to the objectives of our goals which include: Clinical Research, Patient Education, and innovative Research Projects.
We favor approaches and collaborative endeavors with the government, and the private sector. Priority is given to projects that leverage additional support and serve as catalysts for progress in enhancing quality of life for the PD patient and finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
Selection of a grant is on the basis of scientific merit of the project. This is determined by the Scientific Advisory Boards of the national organizations, which provide the expertise to judge the selection of research projects. Typical grants are awarded in the $30,000 - $50,000 range.
The Parkinson Alliance is also devoted to improving the quality of life in the DBS community through informational means and by funding promising research within the DBS field. As a way of keeping the DBS community connected and informed, Margaret Tuchman, founded DBS-STN.org. This web-based neighborhood offers patient surveys, current science review, articles, forums, and related health news.
