Northwestern University scientists received awards for Parkinson’s disease (PD) research from the ASAP Collaborative Research Network, a program of the Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s (ASAP) initiative implemented with partner The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
A majority of Parkinson's patients report a diminished sense of smell before the onset of other symptoms. Researchers who received an ASAP award are exploring whether scent-processing neurons may play a role in PD development.
As the demand for Parkinson's disease genetics specialists continues to grow, GP2 is committed to providing opportunities and training to researchers around the world. With GP2's support, the work and discoveries of our next generation of researchers will accelerate the path to a cure for PD.
