Research & Impact

Parkinson’s Research

APDA proudly invests in the most promising clinicians and scientific projects focused on the discovery of the cause(s) and finding the cure for Parkinson’s disease.

We are committed to scientific research and have been a funding partner in most major Parkinson’s disease scientific breakthroughs, investing more than $47 million in research since 1961. Many APDA funded researchers have successfully leveraged pilot data to secure multi-million dollar grants through the National Institute of Health.


What we fund

APDA maintains eight Centers for Advanced Research in major academic and medical centers across the country intended to strengthen and help integrate already existing investigative teams. Our focus is to bring the best new talent to the field of Parkinson’s Disease research, so we also annually award individual research grants and fellowships for promising research by experienced and young scientists.


APDA is thrilled to release a new video that showcases the impact and progress we have made in the research arena since 1961. The video highlights the urgent need to advance science to help stop the disease progress and ultimately find a cure. APDA prides itself in funding the brightest talent and attracting researchers to the field who want to make a commitment to building a life long career in Parkinson’s.
