A Gift to the Michael J. Fox Foundation 


We are pleased to announce a recent gift that the Parkinson's Association of the Rockies made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) has been allocated as additional support to a larger funded study, "Phenylbutyrate response as a biomarker for alpha-synuclein clearance from brain." This important study is being conducted by Dr. Curt Freed at the University of Colorado. Annually, the Association supports research through donations to MJFF. Over the past four years, we have donated over $30,000 to MJFF. We are pleased to see these dollars supporting the important research that is currently happening in Colorado. For more information on this study, click here.
