Funding Contact(s): Katrina Gwinn, M.D.
Funding Categories: Neurodegeneration, Neurogenetics

Brief Description:

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) intends to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) for grant applications in support of a data coordinating center (DCC) and clinical coordinating center (CCC) focused initially on the discovery and validation of biological markers of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The NINDS convened a conference in May of 2010 to discuss the current state of biomarker development in PD and how development and validation of biomarkers could most effectively be fostered. Based on the insights and recommendations provided at the conference, this effort is being developed as part of the NINDS response to the critical need for biomarker development in PD.
