Michael J. Fox Foundation Announces Launch of PD Online Research
Date:6/1/2009

-- New Web-based community will increase collaboration and resource-sharing in global PD scientific community --

NEW YORK, June 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research announced the launch of PD Online Research (pdonlineresearch.org), a resource-rich virtual workplace that MJFF hopes will become a vibrant Web-based community of PD researchers and funders collaborating and conversing across the globe. MJFF's goal in developing the site is simple: quicker knowledge turns and therefore faster progress in developing transformative new therapies for people with Parkinson's disease.

PD Online is a direct outgrowth of the MJFF's awareness that its own convening power -- which brings together hundreds of research professionals at scores of in-person meetings every year -- is in many ways as important to research progress as is its funding. "Extending the incredibly productive and efficient interactions we see at our meetings to the Web via a scientific social/professional network will provide a platform for thousands of research professionals across the world. It will let them engage daily on key hurdles and hot topics, hopefully accelerating progress and breakthroughs in PD drug development," said Katie Hood, CEO of the MJFF.

The site, which has been conceptualized and built by MJFF in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital and the Initiative in Innovative Computing at Harvard University, is a one-stop shop for both an overview of the state of Parkinson's disease research as well as deep dives into top therapeutic targets and technical issues. The Foundation also hopes PDOR will help drive even better decision-making about PD research investment, helping public, nonprofit and private PD investors access a larger pool of experts than ever before, and in the process make smart and timely decisions about the research paths they choose to pursue.
