At the Davis Phinney Foundation, we have a focus on improving quality of life. Research is a big part of that. While everyone wants a cure for Parkinson’s, what’s so exciting about investing in quality of life research is that people living with Parkinson’s get to benefit from the research we fund immediately.

More and more people apply for funding every year. With your help, we can fund more research that can improve quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s today.

More About Our Research Program
Led by Experts
We are pleased to work with leading experts in quality of life research to change what it means to live with Parkinson’s. We work closely with innovative thinkers both through the work we fund and as advisors.
“I firmly believe that all people with Parkinson’s can live an amazing and meaningful life, even with the physical and emotional challenges that often accompany the day-to-day. In my opinion, it is not a question of IF a person can live a good life with Parkinson’s, it’s a question of HOW a person can live a good life with Parkinson’s, starting NOW!”
“I think back to the early days of the Foundation and the kind of research that it was funding, including Dr. Alberts’ seminal tandem bicycle study. That was the first time I really remember any organization willing to start the conversation about things that people living with Parkinson’s could do right now to take some control and improve their day-to-day quality-of-life.”
For more than a decade, we have supported innovative research, often investing in early-stage research ideas that have gone on to grow and make a huge impact on how people live with Parkinson’s. Scroll down to learn more and click on a study to read more about it.
