BioFocus, in collaboration with the UCL Institute of Neurology, has received a Rapid Response Innovation Award from The Michael J. Fox Foundation

The grant will support the development of a novel Parkinson's disease cell model

The project is further supported by a new collaboration between BioFocus and Professor Tony Schapira, at UCL Institute of Neurology.

Prof. Tony Schapira commented: “The link between mutations in the GBA gene and Parkinson’s disease has been affirmed by multiple clinical studies.
