Every day, The Michael J. Fox Foundation staff join forces with scientists and the Parkinsonís community to identify and advance research with the most promise to address patients' unmet needs. Watch this video for an insider's look at how MJFF assembles smart, dedicated people and the best ideas to accelerate research innovations and collaboration throughout the field.
With a novel approach that blends science, technology and strategy, the video introduces MJFFís team of PhDs, MDs and business-trained project leaders who oversee a portfolio of high-risk / high-reward targets. These efforts are strengthened by cutting-edge technology-based partnerships and the formation of multi-year clinical studies that give both patients and controls opportunities to contribute to research.
They are supported by Development staff who engage committed donors and Team Fox, who rally community fundraisers to educate and empower others to support a cure.
The video also introduces the MJFF Patient Council, Scientific Advisory Board, and Board of Directors who provide strategic direction and build connections to the best minds in research, philanthropic leaders and the patient community.
For MJFF staff and partners, this work is more than just a 9-to-5 role.
