Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is committed to eliminating challenges to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. We identify needed research tools with the potential to bolster efforts throughout the field and work with appropriate partners to engineer these tools at a high level of quality. Once we have developed them, we create (or leverage existing) practical distribution channels that remove hurdles to their widespread use by academic and industry researchers.www.michaeljfox.org
