Four Research Centers Will Share $8 Million Parkinson’s Foundation Grant

The Parkinson’s Foundation has granted four U.S. institutions $8 million to design and launch Parkinson’s disease research studies over the next four years. The University of Florida was one of the four institutions to receive the grant.

The newly designated Parkinson’s Foundation Research Centers will get $2 million each — $500,000 annually — to support their quests to drive innovative investigative developments, and advance studies toward a cure for Parkinson’s.

“This support from the Parkinson’s Foundation will help us make a significant contribution to our understanding of Parkinson’s disease,” said Malu G. Tansey, Ph.D., director of the University of Florida’s Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease. “We are thrilled they have chosen the University of Florida to help shape the future for people with Parkinson’s disease with new discoveries and better therapies.”
