Overview of the ASAP Initiative.

ASAP currently supports the Collaborative Research Network and four resource programs: the Global Parkinson’s Genetics Program (GP2); the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI); the Accelerating Medicines Partnership for Parkinson’s disease (AMP-PD) program; and the iPSC Neurodegenerative Diseases Initiative (iNDI), which is not covered in this article. Open science and open access are core tenets of ASAP's supported programs.

Team structure in the ASAP Collaborative Research Network.

The Core Leadership of each team consists of 3–5 PIs, at least one of whom must be an early-career investigator; each team also has a Coordinator Lead PI who is responsible for overall project management and for reporting to ASAP/MJFF staff. To ensure multi-disciplinarity and geographical diversity, at least two different disciplines and between two and five institutions must also be represented across the Core Leadership.
