How We Fund Research

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


Projects must correlate with our research strategy in order to be considered for funding and any grants we give must directly advance our mission to improve the lives of those with PSP and 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 (link to research@pspassociation.org.uk) 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 and 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 and CBD. Read about some of the projects we are already committed to supporting.
