The foundation recently partnered with Shake It Up Australia Foundation to conduct research on both a cure and better therapies for those with the disease.
Ahead of World Parkinson’s Day on April 11, Fox shared a statement with Daily Mail Australia.
“One billion dollars is a lot of money, and twenty years seems like a long time, but in research terms, we’re high-velocity,” he said of the $1 billion his foundation has funded in research over the past 20 years.
