Research Strategy

“There seems to be a growing momentum in PSP research in the UK at the moment, which is really exciting.”

Dr Diane Swallow, PSP research fellow

Our vision is a world free of PSP and CBD. We fund and promote ground-breaking research to improve the lives of people affected by PSP and CBD and are dedicated to finding treatments and ultimately a cure.

The principal strategic aims of our research funding programme are:

  • To improve early diagnosis of PSP and CBD
  • To understand the causes of these conditions and the chain of events leading to their development and progression
  • To support research aimed at developing new treatments and improving care for people affected by PSP and CBD
  • To stimulate the search for a cure by encouraging collaboration, driving infrastructure development and supporting young researchers.

Our PSP Research Network is central to our research activity. This UK-wide collaboration between leading PSP research centres is a major step towards the achievement of our strategic aims.

Andrew Symons, Chief Executive, PSPA

“An established network will raise the profile of PSP research in the UK and set the scene for future investment.”

We also fund a number of other projects.

PSPA is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities and all research funding proposals are subject to a rigorous peer review process.

We rely entirely on voluntary donations to drive forward the search for an effective treatment. Find out how you can support us.
