To the concerned public:
The Parkinson’s Research Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established exclusively for scientific and educational purposes. The Foundation supports research into the cause and cure of Parkinson’s disease through the Parkinson’s Research Foundation Program in Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience at The Rockefeller University. The program is directed by Dr. Paul Greengard who won the 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discoveries of the mechanisms of nerve cell communication and their relevance to Parkinson’s disease.
Our programs are dedicated to attacking the scourge of Parkinson’s disease; to further this goal we are fighting to delay the onset and/or find a cure for Parkinson’s disease, and to improve the quality of life for those living with the disease and their caregiving families.
The Foundation has committed efforts to develop a comprehensive Parkinson’s Information Program (PIP). The actual program includes an online structure and the production of a documentary on Parkinson’s disease. The Foundation hosts numerous fundraising events throughout the year to sustain its programs.
A full 94 cents per every dollar donated goes directly into research into the cause, care, and cure of Parkinson’s disease.
