HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS
Donations will be used for projects dedicated to the research and development of causal therapies for Parkinson’s disease, in particular projects of and in co-operation with the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS).
Researchers at universities, clinics, non-university research institutions and companies from Germany and abroad can also apply. Funding is available for material resources and/or personnel costs. Applications should be submitted in German or English.
Project proposals from the field of clinical studies, population or health care research, as well as therapy studies and projects that use or develop the latest technologies (such as apps) are particularly welcome; for example, the characterisation of genetic risk factors for the development of Parkinson’s disease, the development of small devices to measure mobility, or therapy studies such as genetically-stratified patients.
The concrete selection of the funded research projects is carried out by a team of experts under the coordination of Professor Susanne Schneider (LMU Munich) in cooperation with Professor Claudia Trenkwalder (President of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, the leading international scientific society for Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders; Chief Physician of the Paracelsus Elena Clinic in Kassel and Professor at the University Hospital Göttingen), Professor Pierluigi Nicotera (Scientific Director of the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE)), and Professor Thomas Gasser (Medical Director. Medical Director of the Department of Neurology with focus on Neurodegenerative Diseases at the University of Tübingen).
In addition, one third of the donations will be used for concrete projects of the YUVEDO Foundation to improve the living conditions of those affected, such as the implementation of the planned ‘Defeat Parkinson’s’ manifesto and the ‘Back on the Bike’ project, which is designed to activate patients and is to be implemented following corona-related restrictions. Finally, we intend to support other projects of our partners, especially the Parkinson self-help organizations or foundations with a similar focus. The decision on project funding for these projects will be made by our Board of Trustees on the basis of a proposal from the YUVEDO Foundation Board.
