GP2 Friends

The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.

A repository of information and links related to the work of the International Parkinson’s Disease Genomics Consortium.

PD GENEration: Mapping the Future of Parkinson’s Disease, is a first-of-its-kind national initiative that offers free genetic testing for clinically relevant Parkinson’s-related genes and free genetic counseling to help participants better understand their results.

A multicenter collaboration across Africa in an effort to increase the knowledge about PD and PD genetics in the region.

A multicenter collaboration across Latin America in an effort to increase the knowledge about PD and PD genetics in the region.

A multicenter collaboration across East Asia in an effort to increase the knowledge about PD and PD genetics in the region.

The Genetic Architecture of Parkinson’s disease in the Indian population (GAP-India) is a multicenter collaboration to increase knowledge about PD in India.

The Genetic Epidemiology of Parkinson’s disease (GEoPD) Consortium is a global consortium of researchers dedicated to promoting education, scientific research, and translational development in PD since its establishment in 2004.
