The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) has launched a publication database as part of our dedication to both open science and finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. This database allows researchers, funders, staff and anyone interested to easily access research publications that MJFF has supported in various capacities.  

“Making this resource accessible aligns with our mission to accelerate scientific progress, but the database also helps us be transparent with our donors, mostly Parkinson’s patients and families, who contribute the capital that drives the progress reflected in these publications,” said Michelle Durborow, senior vice president of research operations, MJFF.  

The main objective of this initiative is to promote open science, ensuring that the knowledge gained from MJFF-funded grants is available and easily accessible to all interested parties — a move that underscores MJFF's commitment to advancing research in PD and fostering collaborations. Scientists can also leverage this to build upon existing research findings, replicate study infrastructures and explore new avenues of inquiry more efficiently. 

Overall, the availability of research publications through open science initiatives fosters a dynamic research ecosystem where stakeholders can collaborate more effectively, share resources and collectively work towards accelerating the search for a cure for Parkinson's disease. This open exchange of information is essential for driving innovation, maximizing research impact and ultimately improving patient outcomes.
