Academic institutions are being invited to apply for the 2018 Edmond J Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders grant awarded by the Michael J Fox Foundation, which will fund the training of a new movement disorder fellow over a two-year period.

The grant is open to institutions worldwide, including centres that have previously been awarded.

The demand for movement disorder specialists – neurologists with subspecialty training in treating Parkinson’s and other movement disorders – is increasing, but not enough neurologists are receiving this vital specialist training.

The Michael J Fox Foundation, in collaboration with long-time supporter and partner the Edmond J Safra Foundation, introduced the scheme to develop a network of highly trained clinician-researchers – the next generation of leaders in Parkinson’s drug development and expert clinical care.

The application deadline is 6 December 2017.
