In addition to PPMI, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) has supported several clinical efforts that have generated valuable biospecimens and data resources for the research community. Qualified investigators may request samples from individual or multiple cohorts through MJFF’s Access Data & Biospecimens program.
For more information on the program and how to apply for access to these resources, visit the Access Data & Biospecimens page on the MJFF website. The table below provides details about these additional, complementary resources.
|Cohort||Population||Research Intent||DNA||RNA||CSF||Whole blood or blood pellet||Plasma||Serum||Urine||Brain tissue||Peripheral tissue||Clinical Data|
|PPMI||De novo, unmedicated PD and controls||Biomarker validation and verification|
|24-Hour Biofluid Sampling||Early to moderate PD and controls||Diurnal biomarker fluctuation|
|Arizona Parkinson’s Disease Consortium||Community cohort||Clinical pathological correlations|
|BioFIND||Moderate to advanced PD and controls||Biomarker discovery|
|DATATOP||Early, unmedicated PD||Biomarker discovery and validation|
|LRRK2 Cohort||Genetic||Understand genetic PD and biomarker discovery/validation|
|Rush University Brain Bank||Community cohort||Clinical pathological correlations|
