Grants of up to $50,000 to Canada researchers, scholars, and health professionals employed by higher education institutions, hospitals, research institutes, nonprofits, NGOs, or other qualifying organizations. These grants are intended to encourage researchers with faculty or equivalent appointments to enter and perform research in new, specifically targeted, high priority areas of Parkinson’s research in Canada.
Pilot Project Program grants intend to foster novel, high-potential projects and ideas with a trajectory for major grants with larger granting institutions. Therefore, funding is intended to be used by researchers to acquire preliminary data leading to development of larger projects eligible for funding from a major granting agency.
Funds awarded under the Program are to be used to cover operating expenses, technical support staff salaries and equipment costs for research grants in areas relevant to the cure, cause, prevention, improved treatment and/or understanding of Parkinson’s disease, related disorders, or other Parkinson’s conditions and its implications on society.
The Program is available to individuals who propose to conduct research on the biomedical, clinical, health services and systems and population areas of Parkinson’s. Parkinson Canada plans to adopt a flexible framework in funding awards under the Program. Parkinson Canada intends to provide 75% of its funding to biomedical research with the remaining 25% of funding to be awarded to research in the clinical, health services and systems and population areas of Parkinson’s.
