Michael J. Fox Foundation Commits Up to $5 Million to Help Advance Neurotrophic Factors 'From Promise to Reality' As Parkinson's Treatment
Date:9/23/2009

l trial.

"While many unanswered questions remain about the potential of neurotrophic factors as therapies for PD, MJFF continues to regard neurotrophic factor therapy as a promising avenue," said Todd Sherer, PhD, vice president of research programs at MJFF. "We believe the approach deserves additional rigorous investigation in hope of advancing the field from promise to reality -- or at least definitively determining its viability."

This Directed LEAPS program is open to academic and industry researchers. Pre-proposals are due November 18, 2009. Funding is anticipated in June 2010. The full RFA and detailed information on submitting an application are available at www.michaeljfox.org/research.


The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to ensuring the development of better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda. MJFF has funded $149 million in research to date.
