If you could ask researchers to study one aspect of PD what would it be? We are seeking your answers as part of the Third PDF Community Choice Research Awards — the first grant awards in the Parkinson’s community to set research priorities based on the insights of those living with the disease.
Since 2013, your responses to the PDF Community Choice Research Awards have helped PDF to identify four unmet needs in Parkinson’s — fatigue, gastrointestinal dysfunction, cognition and dystonia. In turn, we have invested $600,000 to jumpstart research to solve them.
Which topics should we fund next? Your votes will decide.
Vote online today OR vote at our booth (#406) at the 4th World Parkinson Congress in Portland, OR. Our team is on site ready to take your vote.
Responses from people living with Parkinson’s and care partners are eligible for final selection for the award.
