Michael J. Fox Foundation: The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders

The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders aims to grow the global base of movement disorder specialists — neurologists with additional training in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders — by training movement disorder clinician-researchers who can provide expert care and lead scientific advances.

As the demand for movement disorder specialists increases, not enough neurologists are receiving vital training in Parkinson’s and related conditions. To address this need, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), in collaboration with longtime partner the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, launched The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders. The program annually funds academic centers to train a new movement disorder clinician-researcher over a two-year period and is growing an international, collaborative network of next-generation leaders in Parkinson’s research and care.

The program grants funding directly to academic centers, which then must identify and train a new movement disorder clinician-researcher over a two-year period.
