Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
The Michael J. Fox Foundation, one of the world’s leading funders of Parkinson’s disease research, focuses its resources on patient-relevant science holding the greatest promise for improving diagnosis and treatment. It has provided over $285 million to diverse research projects over the past twelve years in pursuit of developing therapies and a cure for Parkinson’s. Working closely with some of the world’s foremost PD specialists, the Foundation insists that researchers share their results early in their projects, encourages strong partnership between academia and industry, and promotes ideas that are rapidly translatable into new treatments.
The Edmond J. Safra Foundation has been one of the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s principal partners since its establishment, supporting a wide variety of research initiatives, including those targeting the often-neglected non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s that impact so significantly on patients’ quality of life.
