To promote clinical-research integration in the area of Parkinson’s Disease, the Klein Family Parkinson’s Disease Rehabilitation Center awards grants of up to $20,000 to teams of clinicians and researchers. The principal investigator must be a member of the Einstein faculty, voluntary medical or professional staff, or an allied professional of Einstein Healthcare Network.
Grants may take one of two forms: research projects intended to increase our understanding of Parkinson’s Disease and its treatment and rehabilitation, or innovative clinical programs that aim to improve the lives of patients and/or their caregivers.
How do I apply?
Applicants should complete a written application form and submit it to the KFPRC Grant Committee. All proposals will be reviewed by the grant committee. One grant will be awarded each funding cycle or as funding permits. Applications will be scored on several criteria including innovation; thus grants will not be awarded for existing or previously funded projects, and requests for bridge funding will not be accepted.
Proposals are due October 15.
Proposal documents should be submitted to Aaron Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I get the grant?
Applicants will complete a 3-month progress report, and annual reports thereafter until the project concludes.
All research proposals must be submitted to Einstein’s IRB committee within 30 days of receipt of the notice of award. KFPRC Funding is contingent upon receiving IRB approval.
