The Michael J. Fox Foundation offers free webinars on topics of interest to researchers, clinicians and industry professionals.
Upcoming Webinars for Researchers
Using Patient Voices to Transform Your Parkinson's Research
Tuesday, June 29, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET
Drug developers routinely call on key opinion leaders to inform and de-risk their research. This webinar will focus on successful approaches to engaging Parkinson’s patients, care partners and patient advocates as another critical set of experts that can help guide development of better treatments specifically with the end user in mind.
In 2021 our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series will host events in September and November.

Getting Started with Fox DEN
Learn how to register for the Fox Data Exploration Network (Fox DEN) data platform and then define cohorts and perform analyses within it. This platform contains data from our online Fox Insight study.
MJFF funded the collaborative Foundational Data Initiative for Parkinson's Disease (FOUNDIN-PD) to generate omics data from induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from our Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative. All FOUNDIN-PD data is publicly available. Watch a webinar to hear the project’s latest findings and analysis plans.
The Promise of Precision Medicine for Parkinson's Disease: Today's Science and Tomorrow's Trials
Part of our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series, our panel discusses clinical heterogeneity in Parkinson’s disease; using genetic, biologic and pathologic signatures for designing clinical trials; and precision medicine approaches for Parkinson’s in this February 2021 event.
Global Parkinson's Genetics Program (GP2) Training Resources
GP2, a resource of the Aligning Science Across Parkinson's (ASAP) initiative, offers free training in Parkinson's genetics tools and topics for all levels of expertise. Fill out a form on the GP2 site to access courses including:

ASAP Collaborative Research Network Informational Webinar
Hear panelists present the goals of the Aligning Science Across Parkinson's (ASAP) initiative. This October 2020 recording also covers a funding opportunity focused on research into circuitry and brain-body interactions.
Introduction to Clinical Genetic Testing for Parkinson’s Disease
This virtual program provides an overview of common Parkinson’s-related genetic mutations and focuses on the implications of recent discoveries on patient clinical care and clinical research; existing mechanisms for genotyping of PD patients (including direct to consumer, research and commercial testing); the role of genetic counseling; and ethical issues surrounding genetic testing of the PD manifest and at-risk individuals.
This is a two-part course called Clinical Genetic Testing for Parkinson’s Disease: Why, When and How? A Virtual CME Series, sponsored by MJFF and Northwestern University.
2020 Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars
In 2020 our Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Webinars series held the following events:
- Where We Are & Where We Are Heading: A Look Ahead at Therapeutic Development in Parkinson’s
- The Many Faces of Parkinson's
- Molecular Signatures of Parkinson’s Disease
- Patient-Focused Drug Development: Novel Instruments to Capture Patient Outcomes in Parkinson’s
