Welcome! The Parkinson’s Foundation is a charity focused on improving the lives of those living with PD both through improving care and advancing research. Everything we do is closely aligned with the needs and priorities of those living with PD.

The Parkinson’s Foundation drives a multi-disciplinary research strategy to close the gaps in knowledge about Parkinson’s – from its basic biology to its impact on the brain and its effects on people. We fund: 

  • The science leading to a greater understanding of the biology of PD. Our researchers, funded through our robust grant program, work to understand biology, neural circuitry, and symptoms through new and exciting research studies. Our competitive awards and grants fund a diverse array of Parkinson's investigators. 
  • Our banner study, PD GENEration: Mapping the Future of Parkinson's Disease, is a national initiative offering free genetic testing for PD-related genes and genetic counseling for people with PD to expand our knowledge of the disease and evolve therapies.
  • The Parkinson's Foundation landmark Parkinson’s Outcomes Project — a nearly 15,000 participant-strong study of people across five countries who live with PD - has led to best care practices and accelerating PD research.
  • Our Prevalence Project - a population health research on how PD impacts groups of individuals.
