The Michael J Fox Foundation is offering one- to two-year grants for any Parkinson’s research that will develop or improve tools to identify mitochondrial biomarkers for the disease.

The goal of the initiative is to assist in the discovery of mitochondrial biomarkers to assess Parkinson’s diagnosis, patient stratification and disease progression. Any knowledge gained from the study will be applied to human biospecimens – biological material obtained for the purpose of research.

The deadline for submission of pre-proposals is 27 September 2017. Funding will be allocated in May 2018.
