The Michael J. Fox Foundation offers free webinars on topics of interest to researchers, clinicians and industry professionals. This includes regularly scheduled webinars for potential applicants to our funding opportunities and a series on hot topics in Parkinson's research and development.
Upcoming Webinars for Researchers
The Promise of Precision Medicine for Parkinson's Disease: Today's Science and Tomorrow's Trials
Thursday, February 25, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET
Join us for the first 2021 event of our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinar series. Moderator Carole Ho, MD, chief medical officer and head of development at Denali Therapeutics, will lead a discussion on clinical heterogeneity in Parkinson’s disease; using genetic, biologic and pathologic signatures for designing clinical trials; and precision medicine approaches for Parkinson’s.
Promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Parkinson's Disease Research Request for Applications
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at 12 p.m. ET
Our understanding of the etiology, clinical presentation and treatment of PD is growing, but remains far from complete. To address this knowledge gap, MJFF is accepting research proposals to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in Parkinson’s research. This webinar provides an overview of the Promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Parkinson's Disease Research request for applications (RFA):
- MJFF Funding Strategy
- MJFF Funding Opportunities
- Grant Application and Proposal Review Process
You can watch previous webinars on demand at any time.

Introduction to Clinical Genetic Testing for Parkinson’s Disease
This virtual program will provide an overview of common Parkinson’s disease (PD) related genetic mutations and focus on the implications of recent discoveries on patient clinical care and clinical research. Specifically, the program will cover the current existing mechanisms for genotyping of PD patients (including direct to consumer, research and commercial testing) and discuss the role of genetic counseling. Ethical issues surrounding genetic testing of the PD manifest and at risk individuals will be discussed. This is part one of the two-part course Clinical Genetic Testing for Parkinson’s Disease: Why, When and How? A Virtual CME Series, sponsored by MJFF and Northwestern University.
