Uncovering the roots of Parkinson's disease, together
A global basic research initiative
Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s (ASAP) is fostering collaboration and resources to better understand the underlying causes of Parkinson’s disease. With scale, transparency, and open access data sharing, we believe we can accelerate the pace of discovery, and inform the path to a cure.
ASAP Launches Catalog
Explore research outputs and tools developed by ASAP-funded programs such as the Collaborative Research Network, Global Parkinson’s Genetics Program, and the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative, in our new Catalog.
Meet our Collaborative Research Network (CRN) Investigators
Learn more about the investigators who are leading ASAP-funded research projects on three key scientific themes related to Parkinson’s disease (PD)–functional genomics, neuro-immune interactions, and circuitry and brain-body interactions.
GP2 Launches Improved Cohort Dashboard
GP2’s cohort dashboard and members’ pages have been updated with improved functionality and new data. We now have 127 cohorts, 8,645 samples completed, and 161,468 samples expected. This product is in service of GP2’s mission to further understand the genetic architecture of Parkinson’s disease (PD) through genotyping diverse participant groups.
An international team of researchers investigates ‘waste collection’ in human cells and helps to create the foundation for treatment of PD.
