MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH

Charitable Giving

Curator's Note

We all know that giving helps others but studies have shown that it can actually boost your physical and mental health. In fact, studies have reported lower blood pressure, reduced stress levels and a surge in our feel-good neurotransmitters when we give of ourselves to others. I guess there’s some scientific proof behind “the joy of giving."

Details

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:

 

Speed treatments that can slow, stop or reverse the progression of Parkinson’s disease

 

Speed better treatments for the currently unaddressed or under-addressed symptoms of Parkinson’s disease

 

Speed treatments to address or avoid the debilitating side effects of current Parkinson’s disease drugs

 

We operate with a focused sense of optimistic urgency to find a cure for Parkinson's and to ensure the development of improved therapies for people living with Parkinson's today. We won't stop until a cure is found.
