PDF Announces $5.3 Million in Research Grants
Because of your support, PDF is funding the creative and novel ideas of scientists around the world with the start of our fiscal year beginning July 1.
The recipients range from our three Research Centers in New York and Chicago to those who applied through PDF’s highly competitive International Grants Program. The applications for the last group were reviewed by members of our Grants Review Committee comprising members of our Scientific Advisory Board, our Parkinson’s Advocates in Research program as well as other leading Parkinson’s scientists. This committee has selected this year’s projects — which represent only five percent of those submitted for funding — as the best science that is most likely to impact the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s.
