Opportunity profile: Seed funding for Parkinson’s projects

Parkinson’s UK's small grants offer up to £50,000 for research proposals aimed at improving diagnosis, management or treatment this debilitating disease. Grants manager Hannah Gillespie-Gallery briefs Lila Randall on the scheme's essentials.

Parkinson’s disease affects around one in 500 people or about 127,000 in the UK alone. Parkinson’s UK is the biggest European funder of research on this condition, having spent £80 million so far on studies to improve the quality of life for people with the condition and ultimately to find a cure.

Its small grants scheme has three calls every year: in 2017 the first closed in May, the next will close on 5 July and the final call will close on 6 September.
