We are excited to have members of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research on the board*!
Michael J. Fox Foundation
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease (PD) through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensure the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
Established by actor Michael J. Fox in 2000, the Foundation has since become the largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s disease research in the world, investing more than $450 million in research to date. The Foundation’s proactive approach to advancing PD science has made it “the most credible voice on Parkinson’s research in the world”.
In 2010 the Fox foundation launched the first large scale clinical study on evolution biomarkers of the disease at a cost of $45 million over 5 years.
