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
  • Past Webinars

    You can watch previous webinars on demand at any time. 

  • ASAP Collaborative Research Network Informational Webinar

    Watch our webinar to hear panelists present the goals of the Aligning Science Across Parkinson's (ASAP) initiative and this funding opportunity focused on research into circuitry and brain-body interactions. Hear them also review the pre-proposal submission and evaluation process. Complete the short registration form then click through to watch the webinar anytime.

  • 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.  

  • Where We Are & Where We Are Heading: A Look Ahead at Therapeutic Development in Parkinson’s

    Part four of our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series, this event focused on the momentum in our field and what’s next in therapeutic development.

  • The Many Faces of Parkinson's

    Part three of our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series, this event focused on ways to drive more patient-centered research. 

  • Molecular Signatures of Parkinson’s Disease

    The second event in our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series delved into the available data and shared some of the key insights to date from analysis of the Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative dataset.

  • Patient-Focused Drug Development: Novel Instruments to Capture Patient Outcomes in Parkinson’s

    The kick-off of our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars focused on MJFF-funded research to identify the symptoms and aspects of disease burden that matter to people living with Parkinson’s. 

  • Getting Started with Fox DEN

    Learn how to register for the Fox DEN data platform and then define cohorts and perform analyses within it. 

  • MJFF Funding Opportunities: Spring 2021

    This webinar covered 2021 funding opportunities and provided an overview of our funding strategy and application procedures. 

  • PIPETTE: 4R Tau and Alpha-Synuclein PET Tracer Development Funding Opportunity

  • MJFF Funding Opportunities: Fall 2020

    This webinar covered fall 2020 funding opportunities and provided an overview of our funding strategy and application procedures.
