Clinical and Basic Research Fellowships

The Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at NYU Langone is committed to educating the next generation of physicians and researchers in the art and science of movement disorders.

Clinical Fellowships

The Fresco Institute treats a wide range of conditions including Parkinson’s disease and other Parkinsonian syndromes, myoclonus, chorea, tics, tremor, dystonia, ataxia, gait disorders and tardive disorders, allowing for a broad training experience. Parkinson’s disease, the most common condition seen by movement disorders specialists, is a difficult condition to manage and a complicated disease to understand and treat. Specialized training of this disease is essential to provide optimal care for these patients. Our fellowships aim to train the next generation of neurologists and scientists in the best possible, comprehensive care of Parkinson’s and in the field’s latest clinical, translational and basic research.

Basic Research Fellowships

The Fresco Institute is also committed to basic research that will improve our understanding of the physiological, anatomical, and molecular substrates of Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders. Our basic research fellowship program allows Italian researchers to engage in postdoctoral work, relevant to the Fresco Institute’s mission, in a state-of-the-art lab within the NYU Langone Medical Center.

We are privileged to receive support for our Movement Disorder fellowship programs from the Foundation Lily Safra, the Kellar Family Foundation, and the Paolo and Marlene Fresco Foundation.
