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. 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 funder of Parkinson’s disease research outside the U. S. federal government, having funded more than $289 million in research projects globally in both academic and industry labs. In 2012, MJFF has nearly a $65 million annual revenue budget and nearly 70 full-time employees. The Foundation is located in the midtown area of New York City.
