Working with Us

Learn what it's like to receive funding from the Foundation and partner on our mission to ensure the development of new and better treatments for people living with Parkinson's disease today.

  • Funding Opportunities

    The Michael J. Fox Foundation works tirelessly to accelerate promising research toward breakthroughs for people with Parkinson's. Our funding programs support basic, translational and clinical research from academia and industry. In addition to funding, awardees benefit from working with our internal research staff and broad network of scientific and industry advisors.

  • Webinars for Researchers

    Our research webinars include regular sessions on our funding opportunities and a series on hot topics in Parkinson's research and development. Register for upcoming webinars or watch previous sessions on demand.

  • Application Guidelines

    Our funding application guidelines cover our review process and criteria, confidentiality, conflicts of interest and special requirements to help potential grantees submit appropriate and compelling funding applications.

  • Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Conference

    The Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics Conference is The Michael J. Fox Foundation's annual scientific conference and the only one in the world focused exclusively on Parkinson's disease drug development.

  • Meetings and Consortia

    Our Foundation frequently organizes consortia of grantees and other experts working in similar areas to share methods and findings, identify challenges to progress, and propose resources and initiatives to overcome those hurdles. Beginning in 2022, MJFF has merged its separate consortia calls into a single series called the Parkinson’s Disease Research Exchange (PDRx). The PDRx will serve as a global network of scientists from academic labs, pharma/biotech companies and CROs and will include investigators focusing on preclinical and/or clinical efforts.
