Keep up with funding for Parkinson's Disease research around the globe with the Parkinson's Disease Funding Analyzer (PDFA). The PDFA showcases funding distribution from 40 countries and allows line-of-investigation queries to look for trends and investigators.

Welcome to Journal of Parkinson's Disease


It is hard to keep up with all of the organizations currently funding Parkinson's Disease research around the globe. For this reason, JPD has decided to offer its community the Parkinson's Disease Funding Analyzer (PDFA). One hundred and fourteen funders from forty countries are represented including all of the European Union, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Qatar, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
