UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology chooses Eoin Mulroy for Class of 2022 Edmond J. Safra Fellow
24 October 2019
The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders has selected five neurology physicians for the Class of 2022, the programme’s fifth class, from top neurology programmes across the world.
This summer, the selected physicians will begin two years of training to become movement disorder clinician-researchers — experts in high-quality care to treat people with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders — as well as leading on critical research.
UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology is proud to welcome Eoin Mulroy as part of this prestigious programme.
Launched in 2014, The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders — a collaboration between The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) and longtime partner the Edmond J. Safra Foundation — bridges a funding gap to build a global network of much-needed movement disorder specialists. Annually, the programme awards funding to five academic centers worldwide to each train a new movement disorder specialist over two years.
With the enrolment of this fifth class and the recent graduation of its second, The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders is on track to graduate 26 new movement disorder specialists by the year 2022.
“With each new class of The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders, we see enormous promise and hope,” says Lily Safra, chairwoman of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation and member of the MJFF Board of Directors.
“This next generation of movement disorder specialists will meet critical needs in patient care and research advancements.”
