cial funding track for academic researchers, we will only increase the quality and quantity of applications we receive."

Under the 2008 TDI program, MJFF primarily seeks to support development of therapies that have the clear potential to provide a disease-modifying benefit (i.e., neuroprotection), something no currently available treatment can do, or to provide long-term and significant relief from PD symptoms above and beyond that offered by current therapies, including strategies to alleviate complications of current treatments such as dyskinesias (the disruptive movements that are a side effect of long-term levodopa use).The Foundation is also eager to support development of treatments that address 'non-motor' aspects of PD, such as cognitive dysfunction, depression, autonomic dysfunction and sleep disorders. In addition, MJFF is interested in novel and innovative therapeutic delivery platforms and technologies that can tackle key delivery barriers and safety concerns to greatly enhance ability of treatments to impact, target and treat PD.

The first two rounds of TDI were enthusiastically received by industry researchers and the scientific community at large. To date the Foundation has awarded nearly $8 million total under the initiative for 14 projects.
