Mission

The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. Watch our video to find out how we will get to a cure.

Our team works tirelessly every day with one urgent goal in mind: Accelerating breakthroughs patients can feel in their everyday lives. We strive to make progress in the following key areas by evaluating risk, opportunities, and challenges through a patient-focused lens:

-Speed treatments that can slow, stop or reverse the progression of Parkinson's disease

-Speed better treatments for the currently unaddressed or under-addressed symptoms of Parkinson's disease

-Speed treatments to address or avoid the debilitating side effects of current Parkinson's disease drugs
