Clinical Research Fund

The National Parkinson Foundation, under the direction of its Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board, has announced the 2015 Clinical Research and Intervention Investigator Awards for Parkinson's Disease. NPF has published a request for applications to fund cutting-edge research. Grant funding is available in three high-impact focus areas:

1. Inflammation
The intersection between inflammation and Parkinson's disease offers the potential to provide new insight into the pathophysiology, etiology, and clinical progression of Parkinson's. Applications in this focus area should clearly link the research to both inflammation and Parkinson's disease.

2. Depression
Findings from the Parkinson's Outcomes Project have highlighted the importance of depressive symptoms to health-related quality of life in Parkinson's disease. Applications in this focus area should clearly link the research to both depression and Parkinson's disease.

3. Sex Differences
From biology to social support, males and females experience Parkinson's disease differently. Applications in this focus area may consider diverse aspects of sex differences in Parkinson's disease in clinical care or preclinical research, with particular attention taken to resolving unambiguously sex differences and how these arise.
