The Michael J. Fox Foundation was launched in 2000 and directs funds to promising research opportunities worldwide. The Foundation strives to make every dollar count as it seeks a cure for Parkinson's disease. With growing resources, the Foundation's focus is increasingly on the clinical and translational research crucial to making strides toward a cure and improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's disease in 1991. Armed with the knowledge that with proper funding, a cure for Parkinson's disease was within reach, Fox publicly disclosed his condition in 1998 and committed himself to the campaign for increased Parkinson's awareness and research funding.
The path from research discovery to the creation of a new treatment is often an extremely long one. The average time for the development of a new central nervous system treatment is currently 13 years. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is helping to speed up drug development for PD with innovative strategies that identify roadblocks along the therapeutic development pipeline. By sharing the risk of drug development with academic and industry researchers alike, we hope to increase the movement of new treatments into the clinic. Learn more about where your donation goes.

Fox Foundation is dedicated to helping develop better treatments for Parkinson's patients and, ultimately, curing the disease. That's why we work to identify and quickly fund the research with the best chance of leading to new treatments. The projects we fund generally fall into one of two categories: Research exploring specific therapeutic approaches that will lead to the development of Parkinson's treatments Research to develop tools and resources that will, in turn, speed the creation of Parkinson's treatments
