Date:9/30/2009

l model of Parkinson's disease, get to the brain and relieve motor symptoms, including rigidity and akinesia or a "freezing" of certain motor muscles. Further pre-clinical testing will be required before tests in humans can begin. But, said Conn, the identification of these molecules is "a big step forward."

Dr. Conn's colleagues in this effort include Colleen Niswender, PhD, Corey Hopkins, PhD, Carrie Jones, PhD, Craig Lindsley, PhD, and David Weaver, PhD, each of whom directs critical components of this large multidisciplinary effort.

More information, including a detailed Q&A with Jeff Conn, is available on The Michael J. Fox Foundation's Web site 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.
