Mission Statement

The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation was established in 1995 to find better treatments and cures for the movement disorders dystonia and Parkinson's disease and to provide medical and patient information.

Description

Key among its efforts, the Foundation funds scientific and clinical research and helps to raise awareness of Parkinson's disease and dystonia among the general public and the medical community. Scientists often find it difficult to get funding in the earliest stages of their research. The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation often provides "seed money" to help explore the most promising hypotheses. Funded through annual grant awards, this helps to leverage new ideas and advances in the fields.
