Collaborative Research Opportunities

The Foundation is an experienced collaborator with biotechnology, pharmaceutical and health tech companies seeking to advance Parkinson's programs.

Collaborate with Us

The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) and industry collaborators frequently work together to move us closer to new treatments and a better quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s. MJFF provides a range of resources available to industry at no cost for research that is aligned with our scientific priorities. We also offers diverse collaboration models: financial, in-kind and non-financial.  

Whether your company is emerging or established, if you share our goal of helping Parkinson's patients through research, we want to hear from you. You can review our Resources for Parkinson's Researchers or contact to discuss the full range of partnering options with our staff.

Path to Prevention Platform Trial 

Our landmark PPMI study is primed to advance innovative trial design for Parkinson’s prevention. Study leaders are beginning discussions with potential partners on opportunities and requirements for a prevention platform trial.

Advancing Research and Therapeutic Development

  • Funding and Non-financial Resources

    MJFF offers a range of resources that directly enable and speed your research.

  • Pre-competitive Consortia

    MJFF brings stakeholders together to leverage shared resources and expertise toward solving common challenges.

  • Research Knowledge-sharing

    MJFF promotes knowledge-sharing and incorporates the latest scientific findings in our efforts to find a cure to Parkinson's.

Engaging the Parkinson’s Disease Community

In addition, we offer ways your company and employees can meet and engage with the Parkinson’s community.

  • Patient and Physician Education

    Our Foundation produces a number of tools for patients, their loved ones and their physicians. These promote educational information about Parkinson’s disease, its symptoms and new therapies in the pipeline so they can make informed care and research participation decisions.

  • Parkinson’s Research Community

    We provide curated events as an opportunity for industry, academics and investors to learn about the latest in Parkinson's research and development and to broadly share the message of our progress.

    • Parkinson’s Disease Therapeutics Conference – The only conference dedicated to Parkinson’s drug development, our annual meeting gathers 300 science and business professionals to network and discuss advances in the field. 
    • Parkinson’s Disease Therapeutics Webinars – This online series between 2020-2021 featured presentations and discussions from leaders in Parkinson’s research and therapeutic development. 
  • Parkinson’s Community Events

    MJFF’s community engagement opportunities aim to support and celebrate advances made in Parkinson’s research with the community.

Collaboration Case Studies

See our collaborations in action.

  • Investing in Early-stage Therapies

    We fund high-risk, high-reward, early-stage therapeutic testing (pre-clinical and clinical) to help small companies build data packages that attract larger investors with resources to advance these projects.

  • Parkinson’s Disease Education Consortium

    This consortium is an alliance of biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms that support our commitment to furnishing high-quality educational resources for the Parkinson's community.

  • Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative

    Sponsored by MJFF and supported by 30 industry collaborators, the PPMI study is building the most robust data set and biospecimen library in Parkinson’s research — readily available for discovery and replication work.

  • Research Tools Consortium

    Through this pre-competitive consortium, MJFF and industry collaborators work to better understand existing research tools and their use in laboratory experiments, as well as to develop new tools to address unmet needs.
