The mission of the Paul Ruby Foundation for Parkinson's Research is to increase awareness about the disease and to raise money for Parkinson's research in partnership with the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Memorial Hospital for the shared vision of increasing clinical research to extend the knowledge and treatment of Parkinson's disease

The Paul Ruby Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit, tax exempt organization.
Each year, the Paul Ruby Foundation selects a research proposal to raise funds for projects connected to finding a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Projects involved with improving quality of life or the treatment of Parkinson's symptoms may also be considered. The Foundation tends to fund smaller projects with seed money, those projects that might not happen without external support.

Once we determine how much money can be donated, we request a written proposal explaining the project. This is followed up with a presentation to our board.

Here are some of the more recent projects that have received funding from the Paul Ruby Foundation:

2010 - $75,000 to fund
Circadian Rhythms and Sleep-Wake Cycles in Early Parkinson's disease by Aleksander Videnovic, MD, MSCI

2010 - $25,000 to fund
PharmocoloMRI of Parkinson's disease: a pilot study of drug effects on connectivity by Darren Gitelman, MD. He will also be working with Tanya Simuni, MD

2009 - $75,000 to fund
Biological Rhythms in Parkinson’s Disease, by Aleksandar Videnovic, MD, MSc

2008 - $50,000 to fund
