Clinical research studies need human volunteers. Our Foundation invests in infrastructure and resources to equip research teams with the tools to recruit and retain participants, driving more volunteers to studies and advancing our understanding and treatment of Parkinson's disease.
Fox Trial Finder, The Michael J. Fox Foundation's clinical study matching tool, helps connect study teams with volunteers who want to participate in research. The online tool allows volunteers to search and find studies they may be eligible to join and reach out to study teams directly.

MJFF has developed a Trial Resource Pack to furnish clinical trial teams with high quality tools to recruit and retain study participants.
Best Practices for Recruitment and Retention
This best practices manual uses the participant journey as an organizing principle for optimizing clinical trial design, increasing awareness and enthusiasm for participation, and addressing frequently encountered challenges.
This suite includes patient-friendly tools that anyone designing a clinical study can customize and use to demystify research and present a study to the Parkinson's community. The toolkit includes 34 templates and guides for practical trial needs, such as marketing materials, informational one-pagers and other key tools, to support patient recruitment and retention.
