Research holds the key to unlock the mysteries of Parkinson’s disease, to improve your quality of life through better treatments, and to move us closer to a cure.

The Parkinson Canada Research Program funds research to improve our understanding of Parkinson’s disease, related disorders including Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), other Parkinson’s conditions and the impact these diseases have on society.
