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(FI) for Parkinson’s and Movement disorders in the Department of Neurology at NYU Langone Health administers a non-ACGME-accredited training program in Movement Disorders. The one year program provides neurologists with focused training that involves developing expertise: in classifying phenomenologically movement disorders stemming from dysfunction of the basal ganglia and cerebellar-thalamo-cortical networks, acquiring knowledge of pathophysiology, basic science and molecular biology, neuroepidemiology, and neuroimaging, and applying neuropharmacology and advanced therapeutic interventions (e.g., deep brain stimulation and botulinum toxin injections) to the treatment of these conditions.

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.
