Michael J. Fox Foundation
Michael J Fox Foundation - Associate
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) was founded in 2000 with one clear objective: accelerating meaningful therapeutic advances and, ultimately, a cure for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The Foundation applies extraordinary scientific, business and media assets to this singular focus—thus creating a unique and dynamic organization. Since inception, MJFF has quickly grown into the largest global funder of Parkinson’s disease research outside the U. S. federal government, having funded over $313 million in research projects in both academic and industry labs worldwide. Today, the Foundation has approximately 70 full-time employees who are based in New York City.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research Associate Program provides an opportunity to learn at a fast-paced, state of the art medical research non-profit organization by working side by side with the experts.
