Research Policy Committee

The Research Policy Committee (RPC) provides funding allocation recommendations to the Parkinson Canada Board of Directors. The RPC also advises the Board on policies about the most effective means to promote research into the cause(s), management and eventual cure of Parkinson’s disease.

The Research Policy Committee (RPC) and Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) are two separate volunteer committees. The chair of the SAC also serves on the RPC to ensure continuity.
