Department of Defense
The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) strongly supports the Department of Defense Neurotoxin Exposure Treatment Parkinson’s Research (NETPR) program. The NETPR program is a national, dual-use, peer-reviewed grant program that examines how to best protect our military personnel from toxic substances, head injury, and other known contributors to Parkinson’s disease. In addition to helping protect our soldiers, research breakthroughs in prevention, detection, and treatment are immediately applied to the broader Parkinson’s disease community.
Created in 1997 by former Congressman Joe McDade (D-PA), the NETPR program has funded over $350 million of Parkinson’s research since its inception. More.
The NETPR program is the only Parkinson’s-specific granting program in the federal government. Each year, the Parkinson’s community works to secure funding for the NETPR program. More.
