The Chair of the Cure Parkinson’s RC is a three-year term of office, with the possibility of renewing for a second three-year term.

The role:

The Cure Parkinson’s Research Committee (RC) is responsible for reviewing research proposals that are submitted on a quarterly basis. The RC is a committee of 10-12 academics and people with Parkinson’s who voluntarily meet four times per year to evaluate approximately 10 grant applications per round. If an application is considered to be within the funding remit and of interest to the RC, they will be sent out for expert peer review. The feedback from those peer reviews will be used by the RC at the next RC meeting (~3 months later) to decide whether to recommend funding the project to the Cure Parkinson’s Trustees.

The main purpose of the RC Chair is to provide leadership to, and oversee management of the RC.

To apply, please submit an expression of interest letter and CV to Cure Parkinson’s Director of Research, Simon Stott.
