Canada | The Michael J. Fox Foundation Research Fellowship

We are pleased to announce the MICHEAL J FOX FOUNDATION RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP at the Toronto Western Hospital/University of Toronto. This is a fellowship designed for physicians and post-doctoral scientists to train in functional neurosurgery and research in Parkinson's disease. 

The Functional Neurosurgery Programme at the Toronto Western Hospital and the University of Toronto is dedicated to the treatment of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. These are areas of immense potential for understanding brain function and for the alleviation of disability in patients with these conditions. We offer a 2-year fellowship, which is awarded on a competitive basis according to academic credentials and the potential for future excellence. The fellowship includes both clinical and researches component each of 1 year for clinicians and a 2-year research fellowship for basic neuroscientists. The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Andres Lozano.

The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in the following areas of Parkinson's disease research:


  1. The development of novel strategies to diagnose, treat and prevent Parkinson's disease.

  2. The testing of new therapies to increase levels of the missing transmitters or improve or repair malfunctioning brain circuits in PD.

  3. Microelectrode recording of single cells in the brain of patients with PD.

  4. The study of stereotactic surgery in Parkinson's disease.

  5. Development of deep brain electrical stimulation to treat Parkinson's disease.

  6. The development of intracerebral delivery of drugs to treat Parkinson's disease.

  7. The participation in multidisciplinary research programs including neurophysiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists and basic neuroscientists.

  8. Participation in a basic science laboratory study of the molecular biology and cellular pathophysiology of PD.


This is an active fellowship program with the objective to train physicians and neuroscientists to develop expertise and become leaders in the research and treatment of Parkinson's disease. Clinical fellows will participate fully in the evaluation of patients in the outpatient clinic and will learn all aspects of surgical treatments. Both the clinical and research fellowship experience will be complemented by a weekly series of teaching rounds and by numerous interactions with visiting scientists. For more information contact:
