Collaborative/ Sponsored Research Agreements
The Parkinsonís Institute has a long track record of successful collaborative research agreements with for-profit sponsors. Collaboration must be consistent with the scientific missions of the Institute and must not compromise the fundamental principles of academic freedom. The Parkinson Institute recognizes that commercially sponsored research agreements can promote the transfer of new technologies for the public benefit, create additional funding for innovative scientific inquiry, and promote productive intellectual exchange between academic and corporate scientists. For further information on industry collaborations, please contact Clyde Taylor, COO, via email or 408-734-2800.
