Parkinson's Research Now: Looking for the Next Big Idea in Parkinsonís
PDF's grant season is fast approaching, which means we are looking for scientists to tell us their big ideas that can change Parkinson's disease.
PDF Research Grant Seasons Opens
PDF has eight funding opportunities that will soon open. In all of these programs, we are seeking scientific ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson's disease.
The grants available include awards for individual investigators as well as several fellowship opportunities to help prepare leaders in Parkinson's research and clinical practice. Take a look at these programs for 2014, and also see who, with your help, we are funding right now in 2013.

From the Blog: Old Drugs - New Cures?
As we prepare for grant season, our research team is also going out into the field to meet and connect with the leading scientists who are seeking to understand and treat PD.
For instance, I attended a Cure Parkinson's Trust meeting in London, asking the question: can repurposing existing drugs for other health conditions speed new treatments for Parkinson's?
Here's a peek at what we discussed.
