Fox Advisors

The Michael J. Fox Foundation relies on leading experts around the world who dedicate their time and insight to help us shape our research strategy.

Our Scientific Advisory Board — a rotating committee of thought leaders — provides regular guidance and direction to MJFF staff on our research strategy. In addition, a global network of experts helps review grant proposals and assess project outcomes, and provides key input on specific Foundation initiatives. We would like to extend special thanks to the following Fox Advisors who helped MJFF drive progress over the last year.
