The Movement Disorders Center was founded in 2012 with a mission to establish an international center for excellence in movement disorders related research, education, clinical care, and community outreach.
Basic science research plays an important role in all that the Center does. We want to work more closely with those who lay the ground work for our research, foster collaborations, and improve basic science translation to the clinical realm.
Currently, the Movement Disorders Center is looking for neuroscientists who are interested in or whose research may overlap with neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease, parkinsonian conditions, Huntington's disease, chorea, myoclonus, tics, dystonia, tremor, ataxia or cerebellar disorders. We are also interested in collaborating with neuroscientists involved or interested in research on movement, neurodegenerative diseases, neuroprotection, dopamine and basal ganglia function, brain stimulation, and other research fields that may be pertinent to movement disorders.
Membership is free and benefits include the opportunity to attend and present at our monthly interdisciplinary series, opportunities to discuss your research and form new collaborations, apply for pilot research funding, and to be notified of upcoming events that involve the movement disorders community.
Every year the Movement Disorders Center hosts a research and networking retreat. Researchers from across the state get together and have the opportunity to present briefly on their work and make connections with others who are involved in similar or relevant research. Our members are always excited to hear and learn about research going on in our field here in Colorado!
We look forward to continuing to expand our outreach to researchers. If you are interested in joining us in this mission, please send your CV or NIH Biosketch to Nicole Leith at You may also apply on line by clicking here.
We look forward to working with you.
