, particularly when taking dopaminergic drugs. Dr. Napier will combine preclinical models of PD and addictive behavior with the goal of developing a preclinical model to better characterize the putative link between dopamine replacement and impulse control problems.

Awards duration ranges from one to three years. As with all MJFF grants, full funding is dependent on fulfillment of predetermined, specific milestones and on researchers' agreement to make the results of their work available to the PD research community. The selection of program awardees was made exclusively by the Foundation under its standard peer-review process.
