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.

2022: A Year in Review

As 2022 comes to a close, we took a moment to reflect on the impact our initiative, network, and ASAP-supported programs are having on the Parkinson’s disease community. See how our progress and outcomes are accelerating the pace of discovery through increased collaborations, the generation of research-enabling resources, and data sharing.

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.
