DNA Designs Parkinson’s Foundation Site

NEW YORK — DNA Studio has designed a new Web site for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The site launch coincides with the release of the star’s memoir, Lucky Man.

The Los Angeles-based digital media agency has worked with the foundation since it was founded in May 2002.

Befitting the foundation’s focus on research, the new site ( http://www.michaeljfox.org/ ) offers resources for scientists and clinicians, including research agendas, grant information and applications. It also contains political, advocacy and treatment news, as well as links to other Parkinson’s related Web sites and organizations.

“The new Web site is a major part of our aggressive effort to streamline research information, policies and procedures for leading scientists in the field,” said Deborah W. Brooks, the foundation’s executive director, adding that the site reaches out to researchers, policy makers and members of the Parkinson’s Disease community.

DNA created the site to comply as closely as possible with the strict Internet accessibility guidelines established by the federal government in the American with Disabilities Act.
