Subject Areas: Parkinson's Disease

The Target Advancement Program seeks to build conclusive evidence to rationalize biological pathways and targets for Parkinson?s disease (PD) therapeutic development. Funding will support projects focused on validating PD-relevant targets implicated primarily in disease modification, but may also support research into targets relevant to symptomatic strategies (motor and non-motor symptoms of PD).

Research into the etiology, pathophysiology and therapy of PD is providing unprecedented information on biological mechanisms underlying the disease and its treatment. MJFF is intent on leveraging and translating basic research rapidly to promote novel therapeutic development by pharmaceutical and biotech companies. To this end, MJFF believes that promoting critical target validation studies within academic and industry laboratories can help de-risk investments in therapeutic development and ultimately accelerate the creation of innovative therapies for PD patients.

Application Details: Target Advancement Awards support one-year grants up to $100,000 total costs inclusive of both direct and indirect costs. No more than 10% of the direct costs may go to indirect costs.The application process involves two steps: Letter of Intent, and Invited Proposals. Please see sponsor guidelines for full details.
