Do you have an innovative research idea that might help improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s? Consider submitting an application for funding from our Quality of Life Research Program. The grant application timeline for 2022 is below.
Like our core mission, our research program at the Davis Phinney Foundation is uniquely focused on helping people with Parkinson’s live well today. Each year, we partner with leading researchers and institutions to fund quality of life research that shows promise to help change how people live with Parkinson’s, not years in the future but right away. Guided by our Science Advisory Board, we have supported more than 30 research studies focused on exercise, nutrition, gait, speech, telemedicine, complementary therapies, and other interventions that affect quality of life.
Many of these studies have progressed to late-stage clinical research. Others have received NIH and PCORI funding, while others have become therapies that are being used today by people living with Parkinson’s. And some do all of these, helping countless people with Parkinson’s live well immediately (and years later as well).
