Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research: Improved Biomarkers and Clinical Outcome Measures Program (Outcome Measures)

This program awards research grants to develop robust and precise biomarker measures (imaging, physiological, genomic or biochemical assays, data science proposals, etc.) and/or clinical outcome measures that can inform therapeutic trial designs and interpretation of trial results. Biomarker and outcome measures should inform clinical trial decisions and be applicable to clinical trials now or in the near future.

 Funding & Duration

The Foundation intends to support multiple projects through this announcement, and may fund up to US $4M (approx. AUD $5.2M) for this program.
