Grants for Parkinson's Research

The application period for ASAP’s circuitry and brain-body interactions funding opportunity has closed. ASAP does not currently have any funding opportunities available. Below are key dates from our last funding opportunity for general information about the process.

Circuitry and Brain-Body Interactions

ASAP’s most recent funding opportunity for circuitry and brain-body interactions studies funded up to $9 million over three years, per team (additional funding available for certain pre-clinical models).

During active funding periods, ASAP seeks to fund research projects that address key knowledge gaps in the basic mechanisms that contribute to Parkinson’s development and progression. This RFA was open to international organizations including public and private non-profit groups, agencies of the U.S. federal government, and for-profit entities. Applications were submitted by multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research teams consisting of three to five investigators.

ASAP works with The Michael J. Fox Foundation to implement the award process.
