Hello LATP here are fellowship and award opportunities,

Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists and Clinical Neurologists:


The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists

Two-year fellowships for young scientists to study at major research institutions. The Parkinson’s Foundation seeks research proposals from promising early-career scientists that will directly impact the understanding of Parkinson’s disease or its treatment. This program grants $124,000 over two years.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Clinical Neurologists

Fellowships for young clinicians who have completed their neurology residency and are seeking clinical research experience. This program grants two-year awards in the amount of $140,000.

Launch Awards

This award will enable outstanding postdoctoral researchers to complete needed mentored training and transition promptly to independent research careers in the Parkinson’s disease field. This award is a two-stage program. The strongest applicants will propose a well-conceived plan for 1-2 years of mentored research training and career development to help them become competitive candidates for independent faculty positions, preparing them to launch robust, separate research programs studying Parkinson’s disease. The Launch Award provides a total of $400,000 for up to 4 years.

Stanley Fahn Junior Faculty Awards

The Parkinson’s Foundation seeks clinical, pre-clinical or basic research proposals that will directly impact the understanding of Parkinson’s or its treatment from promising early career scientists. Successful projects should include novel research hypotheses and be inventive in methodology or approach. Each award provides $300,000 in total costs.

Impact Awards

Impact Awards are designed for researchers both established and new to the field of Parkinson’s disease. Projects should be "outside the box" with the goal of bringing new light to the biology of Parkinson's, a new approach to Parkinson’s research, or testing a truly novel therapeutic idea. Our goal is to provide the support that will enable researchers to test new ideas with an impact to the PD community and generate compelling results that will facilitate continued investment from the Parkinson’s Foundation and other funders. Awards are up to a maximum of $150,000 for 12-18 months.
