WHO WE ARE

The Fresco Parkinson Institute (FPI) Foundation, established in 2015, is an international non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones.

The Fresco Parkinson Institute Foundation, was founded thanks to a donation of 25 million euros, 14 million of which for Italy, in favor of the Foundation “Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders” based at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan (NYU). The aim of the contemporary presence in the two countries is to promote a scientific and cultural exchange that allows to improve the quality of life of patients through research, training of operators and caregivers.

OUR STATUTE

“Vi sono molte cose che non sappiamo sul Parkinson e attraverso questa donazione abbiamo la possibilità di cambiare il paradigma di presa in carico di questa malattia devastante. La collaborazione con le comunità scientifiche e mediche italiane è un elemento chiave di questo programma di cui beneficeranno entrambi i Paesi. Ho pensato fosse giusto destinare le mie donazioni ai due Paesi a cui sono legato da particolare gratitudine, l’Italia che mi ha dato i natali e l’educazione e gli Usa che mi hanno dato generose opportunità di crescita professionale.”

– Paolo Fresco

WHAT WE DO

We want to help learn more about the causes of Parkinson’s and improve the quality of life of those affected.

We want to give a scientific basis to the non-pharmacological interventions that help patients to remain active for as long as possible and to live their lives to the fullest.
We promote academic and scientific programs and collaboration, between the United States and Italy, which allow an interdisciplinary impulse to basic scientific and clinical research. We fund an innovative scholarship program for young Italian scientists and researchers, sent to New York University Langone Medical Health to do research and to learn about the model of care and rehabilitation, developed in New York, while bringing across the Atlantic the great diagnostic and therapeutic capacityof the Italian neurological school.
