Parkinson's Research - The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research


One urgent goal: Eliminate Parkinson's disease in our lifetime. 89 cents of every dollar spent goes to research, leading to $750 million granted since 2000.

Real Life

Our team works tirelessly every day with one urgent goal in mind: Accelerating breakthroughs patients can feel in their everyday lives.

We strive to make progress in the following key areas by evaluating risk, opportunities, and challenges through a patient-focused lens:
  1. Speed treatments that can slow, stop or reverse the progression of Parkinson's disease
  2. Speed better treatments for the currently unaddressed or under-addressed symptoms of Parkinson's disease
  3. Speed treatments to address or avoid the debilitating side effects of current Parkinson's disease drugs.
