      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.

      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. Grant support cannot be used for a fellow already enrolled or selected. These funds may cover the fellow’s stipend, benefits and travel allowance as well as coursework, conferences, and other relevant educational and training opportunities. No indirect costs may be claimed for this award.

      The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders is open to academic centers worldwide. Previously awarded centers — except those that received an Edmond J. Safra Fellowship grant in the most recent funding cycle — are eligible to apply.

      The McKnight Foundation is interested in proposals that address the biological mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This includes proposals that provide mechanistic insights into neurological functions at the synaptic, cellular, molecular, genetic or behavioral level across different species, including humans and vertebrate and invertebrate model organisms. A new additional area of interest is the contribution of the environment to brain disorders. The McKnight Foundation is particularly interested in proposals that incorporate new approaches and in those that provide potential paths for therapeutic interventions. Collaborative and cross-disciplinary applications are encouraged.

      Environmental contributions to brain disorders:  Early-life environmental stress is a powerful disposing factor for later neurological and psychiatric disorders. Studies show communities of color are at higher risk for these stressors, which range from environmental (e.g. climate, nutrition, exposure to chemicals, pollution) to social (e.g. family, education, housing, poverty). From a clinical perspective, understanding how environmental factors contribute to brain disease is essential for developing effective therapies. As 2023 is the first year of this new additional focus, we welcome inquiries about the relevance of a particular research proposal to this focus.
