Thank you for your post.
I'm afraid I haven't read Bad Pharma, so I can't comment on the content of the book - it's on my list, especially after being flagged up here.
In answer to your questions:
You can find out more about support we receive from pharmaceutical companies at the bottom of the 'About Us' page on our website: http://www.parkinsons.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do.aspx
We don't actually carry out research studies ourselves - we provide funding to researchers who are experts in their fields, working in universities and hospitals around the UK (and beyond). To ensure we only fund the best quality research, all our grants are reviewed through the same independent and transparent process, which is explained here: http://bit.ly/WviiVb
We expect our researchers to share their findings in high-quality, peer-reviewed journals. In fact, we believe the best way to share research findings is through free, unrestricted online access. You can read our policy on open access publishing here:http://bit.ly/HNgZt2
I hope this puts your mind at rest about our research.
