The Michael J. Fox Foundation announced $1.7 million in funding to drive new and continuing Parkinson's research projects at the Banner Sun Health Research Institute and Mayo Clinic Arizona, sites of the Arizona Parkinson's Disease Consortium. Of the total funding, $1.1 million represents renewed funding for directed projects led by principal investigators Charles Adler, MD, PhD, at Mayo Clinic Arizona and Thomas Beach, MD, PhD, at Banner Sun Health Research Institute.

 

This funding will allow Drs. Adler and Beach to continue projects initially launched in 2006 under MJFF's three-year, $2.8 million Prescott Family Initiative at the Arizona Parkinson's Disease Consortium.
