We cannot find a cure alone. To deliver our vision of a world free of Parkinson’s we work with many different partners from all regions of the Parkinson’s community.

We believe collaboration is key to finding a cure and we are proud to work with advocates, people with Parkinson’s and their families, members of the research community, funders and educational organisations to achieve our goal of curing Parkinson’s.

Strategic partners

Cure Parkinson’s partners with Van Andel Institute (VAI) and the John Black Charitable Foundation (JBCF) to fund our International Linked Clinical Trials (iLCT) initiative. This is a thriving global programme that aims to develop new, potentially disease-modifying Parkinson’s therapies, many of which are repurposed medications originally designed or approved to treat other diseases. Together, we have pledged a total of USD $6.75 million to Parkinson’s research, over three years.
