Science and the development of new ideas and thoughts are the golden rule for innovating better and important therapies. This is especially true for the brave new world of neurodegenerative disorders as we understand them today. Graduate students that support this mandate are absolutely essential in providing the manpower and fuel. Without funding for these students, scientific advancement would grind to a halt. The role of funding agencies is to foster and inculcate these young minds so that the future of science in studying Parkinson’s disease remains bright.
