New research advances are expanding our knowledge of Parkinson's disease and bringing us closer to the ultimate goals of new treatments, effective cures, and disease prevention. In this introductory episode, you'll hear from Dr. Brian Fiske and Dr. Mark Frasier, Co-Chief Scientific Officers at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF). During the conversation, they provide their perspectives on the state of the field of Parkinson's disease research, describe new advances in biomarkers for Parkinson's disease, and discuss progress in the development of novel therapeutics. They also share insights on resources and tools being developed to advance Parkinson's research, MJFF's research strategy, and what it could mean for your research.
