The ASAP Collaborative Research Network (CRN) is the first of its kind to cultivate collaboration, open science, and early data-sharing–at scale–to accelerate Parkinson’s disease discovery research.
The CRN is an international, multidisciplinary, and multi-institutional network of collaborating investigators working to address high-priority basic science questions. Teams are awarded grant funding through request for applications in partnership with the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF).

ASAP’s CRN is focused on three key scientific themes related to Parkinson’s disease (PD)–functional genomics, neuro-immune interactions, and circuitry and brain-body interactions. Investigators on these teams bring the breadth of their collective experience to the PD field as they come from multiple disciplines, institutions, career stages, and geographies. Together, they share in ASAP’s mission to improve our understanding of PD development and progression through collaboration, resource generation and data sharing.
