The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation® (PDF®) is a leading national presence in Parkinson’s disease research, education and public advocacy. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has funded over $85 million worth of scientific research, supporting the work of leading scientists throughout the world, and over $34 million to support people living with Parkinson’s through our education and advocacy programs. In addition to supporting teams of researchers in their quest to understand Parkinson’s and find a cure, an important component of PDF’s research focus is addressing the barriers to the acceleration of clinical research – beginning with the training of young neurologists who are needed to conduct clinical research; supporting the collaborative initiatives among the largest group of Parkinson’s clinical researchers in the US; and creating a network of more than 100 research advocates from 36 states who are working to bring educated consumer voices to important issues in Parkinson’s therapy development.
