The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders
Movement disorder specialists ó neurologists with subspecialty training in treating Parkinsonís disease and other movement disorders ó serve as an important bridge between scientific advances in the lab and positive patient outcomes in the care setting. While the demand for movement disorder specialists increases, not enough neurologists are receiving this vital training. To address this unmet need, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), in collaboration with longtime supporter and partner The Edmond J. Safra Foundation, introduced The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders. The goal is to develop a network of highly trained clinician-researchers ó the next generation of leaders in Parkinsonís patient-relevant drug development and expert clinical care.
Applications for 2018 awards are now being accepted.

The program grants funding directly to academic institutions, which must then identify and train a new movement disorder fellow over a two-year period. Grant support cannot be used for a fellow already enrolled or selected.
The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders is open to both US and international centers. Previously awarded centers also qualify.
