Berg Pharma and the Parkinson's Institute ink R&D collaboration to drive disease understanding and accelerate therapeutic and diagnostic development in Parkinson's Disease
Date:6/25/2012

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Berg Pharma, a Boston-based pharmaceutical company and the renowned Parkinson's Institute announced a unique partnership that would enable a more robust modeling in the investigation of Parkinson's Disease (PD).  There are approximately one million Americans who live with the disease with 50,000 new cases per year and this rate is expected to rise with an aging baby boomer population.

Fox Foundation, opened the field up to research and today leads the Institute that houses a strong clinical and research capability. 

Niven R.
