Through the research program Wallenberg Clinical Scholars, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation are funding 24 of the foremost clinical researchers in Sweden. Almost SEK 800 million are used for funding over ten years. Åsa Petersén was appointed Wallenberg Clinical Scholar 2020 and will receive SEK 15 million over five years. 

The Swedish Research Council is the largest provider of public funds (nearly SEK 8 billion per year) for Swedish basic research at Swedish higher education institutions (HEI:s) and research institutes. The projects it supports are mainly initiated by the researchers themselves. The support is distributed by the Scientific Councils and the Committees for Educational Science and Research Infrastructures to research that is of the highest scientific quality and best promotes the renewal of research. Petersén has been granted SEK 6 000 000 over the years 2023-2026.

The Faculty of Medicine's priority committee for clinical research has rewarded Peterséns research group with an ALF-grant of SEK 1 873 000 for 2023. ALF stands for Avtal om Läkarutbildning och Forskning.

Hjärnfonden (Brain foundation) is a not-profit foundation that raises money and award funds for research on the brain and its' diseases, damages and disabilities. Hjärnfonden also informs and raises awareness on these topics. During 2019 Hjärnfonden distributed nearly SEK 137 000 000 to advanced brain research.
