The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) announces $7.7 million in new funding for 39 projects chosen through our biannual call for applications. I sat with MJFF Senior Vice President of Research Programs Mark Frasier, PhD, to explore some of these innovative studies. Highlights include retinal scanning for diagnosis, an asthma drug for Parkinson's, and tracking the cellular effects of pesticide exposure.
This is the first in our new video series "Ask the PhD," a complement to our popular "Ask the MD" series. While "Ask the MD" focuses on aspects of Parkinson's disease and care, this new series will offer the latest from the MJFF research portfolio and new findings that advance understanding, measurement and treatment of Parkinson's.
