The Johns Hopkins Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center has been awarded an Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders Class of 2024 by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Application on behalf of the center was made by Alex Pantelyat, M.D. (pictured), co-director of the Johns Hopkins Movement Disorders Fellowship Program. This training program is part of the Johns Hopkins Parkinson and Movement Disorders Center, directed by Kelly Mills, M.D., M.H.S. The award is for $180,000 over two years starting in July 2022 and ending in June 2024 and will be used to train a movement disorders clinician-researcher. "This award confirms our fellowship program's status as one of the best training programs for movement disorders in the world," Pantelyat says. "It strongly validates our team-based multidisciplinary approach to training the next generation of leaders in movement disorders neurology."
