Basic and Clinical Research

The Fresco Parkinson Institute aims to advance basic and clinical research capabilities to understand more fully Parkinson’s and movement disorders, and improve diagnostics, clinical treatment, and treatment modalities.

BASIC NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH

Led by Dr. Richard Tsien, the Scientific Director of the Fresco Parkinson Institute and Director of the Neuroscience Institute, the NYU Langone Medical Center’s basic research team investigates dopamine release, regulation, and effects on downstream neural signaling and animal behavior.

FRESCO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

Thanks to its partnership with the Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at NYU Langone Health, the Fresco Parkinson Institute is offering the opportunity to further education in the research and treatment of Parkinson’s disease to the next generation of physicians and researchers in the art and science of movement disorders. We offer a movement disorders fellowship for neurologists based in the United States, and both clinical and research fellowships for Italian medical doctors who specialize in neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurophysiopathology, or geriatrics, as well as researchers. Our fellowships train young doctor and scientists in the comprehensive care of Parkinson’s disease as well as in the latest clinical, translational, and basic research
Fresco Parkinson Institute is providing support for multiple year clinical research and basic science research fellowships to take place in New York City at the Fresco Parkinson Institute at NYU Langone Health.

FRESCO INDIVIDUAL INVESTIGATOR AWARD 2018

The Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders at NYU Langone Medical Center (FI-NYU) is establishing programs in New York and Italy to encourage early career scientists to pursue basic research that will improve our understanding of Parkinson’s and movement disorders. A central goal of FI is to help develop and support the medical and scientific community in Italy working in this area. Our Basic Research Grants Program is specifically focused on encouraging outstanding and innovative early career scientists who are pursuing basic science questions related to Parkinson’s and movement disorders.

This program is designed to support early career scientists during a critical career stage, as they prepare to move from a mentored position, such as a postdoctoral fellowship, into a more independent role, such as into a faculty or equivalent position. Each Fresco Basic Research Grant is supporting a three-year postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent appointment in one of the Center of the Fresco network in Italy.

RESEARCH NETWORK

Il Fresco Parkinson Institute collabora con alcuni centri italiani impegnati nel trattamento e nella ricerca della malattia di Parkinson e disturbi del movimento per lo svolgimento di progetti di ricerca e per la formazione degli operatori sanitari.
In particolare, il Fresco Parkinson Institute fornisce una guida e un supporto finanziario per la messa a punto di percorsi assistenziali validati e ottimali.
Grazie al network di ricerca e cura della Fondazione Paolo e Marlène Fresco, i centri che entrano a far parte di progetti promossi dal Fresco Parkinson Institute in Italia possono avvalersi della collaborazione della National Parkinson Foundation (in particolare per il progetto POP) e partecipare a progetti di ricerca congiunti con il Fresco Parkinson Institute presso la NYU Langone Medical School.
Inoltre i medici e ricercatori afferenti ai centri selezionati contribuiscono a comporre la faculty dei corsi di formazione promossi dall’Academy presso la sede di Fiesole.
