How We Fund Research

The processes and people behind our research decisions


Our support for ground-breaking research studies is funded entirely by voluntary donations.

Projects must correlate with priorities outlines in our research strategy in order to be considered for funding and any grants we give must directly advance our purpose to create a better life for everyone affected by PSP & CBD.


Our application for funding and peer review processes comply with the standards set out by the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC).

We ensure all applications for funding over £25,000 are externally peer reviewed and adhere to clear guidance on conflicts of interest.

Further information on PSPA’s application process can be requested from our Research Manager and current funding opportunities will appear in our news section. We also adhere to the AMRC position statement on the use of animals in research.   However, as both PSP & CBD cannot be mimicked in animals we do not envisage any brain research in animals in the near future.

Our Board of Trustees has ultimate responsibility for the allocation of research funds and takes advice from the Research Committee before making a final decision on which projects to support.

Your donations will help us continue to fund vital research to bring us closer to effective treatments for PSP & CBD. Read about some of the projects we are already committed to supporting.
