The Finnish Parkinson Foundation supports research

The Finnish Parkinson Foundation has been involved in funding several research projects and doctoral theses focusing on movement disorders.

Research results have contributed to building our knowledge about Parkinson’s disease and have helped us to understand the problems faced by those diagnosed with the disease. Understanding the underlying mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders and developing their treatment and rehabilitation call for continuous research efforts.

The Finnish Parkinson Foundation accepts grant applications once a year. The closing date for submission of applications is 31 January, which is the date by which signed applications sent by post must arrive at the Foundation.
