Parkinson’s is a complex condition for which there is no known cause or cure.
Parkinson’s Victoria actively supports a research program, partnering with institutes and universities to support:
- scientific research to discover more about the cause, and potential cure, of Parkinson’s and Atypical Parkinson’s
- applied research to improve the lives of people currently living with Parkinson’s and Atypical Parkinson’s.
The Parkinson’s Victoria Research Committee reviews all requests for research support to ensure the proposal has scientific rigour and is underpinned by appropriate ethics approval.
Importantly, it also ensures that Parkinson’s Victoria’s research investment fits within the aims of our strategic plan and Mission.
A review of our research strategy commenced in 2018-19. The review explored how we can best use our research funds in the search for a cure, and the impact on people’s quality of life during their lifetime.
