The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research deploys financial and intellectual resources at every stage of drug development to attract and expand investment in Parkinson's disease by pharmaceutical companies and follow-on funders.

Our on-staff PhDs and business-trained project managers collaborate closely with industry and academic research teams.
