Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research: Edmond J. Safra Fellowships in Movement Disorders
The Michael J. Fox Foundation calls for Applications for Edmond J. Safra Fellowships in Movement Disorders. Fellowship duration is 2 years and funding is $ 90 000/year. Deadline for proposals is 6 December 2017.
Movement disorder specialists — neurologists with subspecialty training in treating Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders — 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 — the next generation of leaders in Parkinson’s patient-relevant drug development and expert clinical care.
