Submission Deadline: PSG Mentored Clinical Research Award

Submission Deadline: PSG Mentored Clinical Research Award

The PSG MCRA is for new investigators in patient-oriented research in Parkinson’s disease and related disorders.

The Mentored Clinical Research Award (MCRA) for new investigators is funded by a grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation (PF) to the Parkinson Study Group (PSG). The PF collaborates with the PSG to encourage the professional and scientific development of young investigators on their path to independence. To this end, this grant supports a new investigator for a one year project in patient oriented research in Parkinson disease (PD) or other parkinsonian disorders. The new investigator works under the mentorship of an experienced investigator. Training should enhance the junior clinical research skills. The research plan should address unmet needs of people living with PD, have the potential for broad application among the PD community, and lead to advances in clinically relevant treatment options.

Award available: $50,000
Submission deadline: January 18, 2019

Linking Pathogenesis with Disease Modification: Revision vs Reconstruction


Challenge: How can disease modification in Parkinson’s disease become a reality in the near future? If Parkinson’s disease is not a single, homogeneous disorder, can advances in biomarkers and disease modification be revised to concentrate on commonalities of pathogenic mechanisms in large populations OR do they need to be reconstructed for application to smaller subgroups of patients, distinguished by well-defined molecular characteristics? 

Steering Committee: Anthony E. Lang, Alfonso Fasano, Francesca Morgante, Alberto J. Espay, Andres M. Lozano, Lorraine Kalia, & Antonio Strafella
