Michael J. Fox Foundation Awards $2.1 Million to Improve Drug Delivery in Parkinson's Disease
Date:3/27/2009

NEW YORK, March 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michael J. Fox Foundation announced that it has awarded approximately $2.1 million total to seven research teams working to improve drug delivery for Parkinson's disease.

The funding was awarded under the Foundation's Improving Delivery of Parkinson's Disease Therapeutics to the Brain. The program is designed to address two major challenges to the development of transformative treatments for Parkinson's disease: the need for non-invasive drug delivery technologies allowing therapeutics to cross the blood-brain barrier, and the need to more precisely understand how molecules move inside the central nervous system in order to target treatments to specific regions of the brain.

Funded projects are listed below. Full information on funded projects, including grant abstracts and researcher bios, is available on the Foundation's Searchable Database of Funded Grants.
