The Mentored Clinical Research Award (MCRA) for new investigators encourages the professional and scientific development of young investigators on their path to independence. To this end, this award supports a new investigator for a two 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.
This year we are offering an award of $100,000 per year for 2 years with the second year contingent on meeting milestones for year 1.
