Through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), the Department of Defense is announcing the 2024 Parkinson's Research Program (PRP). Several award programs are available:

  • The Early Investigator Research Awards supports research opportunities for investigators in the early stages of their careers. The Early Investigator is considered the Principal Investigator (PI) of the application and must exhibit strong potential for, and commitment to, pursuing a career as an investigator at the forefront of PD research; however, the PI is not required to have previous PD research experience. The award offers two levels of funding dependent upon the level of experience of the PI:
    • Funding Level 1 – Postdoc: Early-career investigators at post-doctoral level, including clinical fellows, may be named as the PI on the application (Mentor required).
    • Funding Level 2 – Junior Faculty: Early-career investigators at junior faculty level may be named as the PI on the application. Junior faculty are instructors or assistant professors (or equivalent) within 10 years of advanced degree training or residency training completion.
All applications must specifically address at least one of the Focus Areas listed in this document.
  • The Investigator-Initiated Research Award supports highly rigorous, multidisciplinary, high-impact research projects that have the potential to make an important contribution to Parkinson’s research.  This award mechanism supports the full spectrum of research from basic science through clinical research.
All applications must specifically address at least one of the Focus Areas listed in this document.

  • Early Investigator Research Award: $200,000 – 500,000
  • Investigator-Initiated Research Award: $2M
