Partnering on research initiatives allows Parkinson Society Canada (PSC) to invest more money into more research that will ultimately benefit the over 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s, their care partners, and families. It is the cornerstone of what we do as the largest non-government funder of Parkinson’s research in Canada.
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR): Institute of Neuroscience, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA). PSC is partnering with INMHA to fund psychosocial research, offering two-year research grants ($100,000) and doctoral awards ($44,000).
- Research Program on Care Practice in Cognitive Impairment in Aging. PSC is participating in this joint initiative led by CIHR’s Institute of Aging. Additional partners include the Alzheimer Society of Canada, Canadian Home Care Association, Canadian Nurses Foundation, the CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. This research program will net a total investment of $1.3 million over two years.
- Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ). PSC is partnering with FRSQ to co-fund four fellowships for clinical or basic research in Quebec, for a total investment of up to $400,000 over the next two years.
