American Brain Foundation 2013 Clinical Research Training Fellowships
Application Deadline: October 1, 2012
Clinical Research Training Fellowship The fellowships are supported by the AAN and the American Brain Foundation.
Clinical research is the fundamental transition stage between discovery and treatment. Clinical research provides the scientific basis for all forms of care, addresses patient and caregiver needs, and is the backbone for drug development and cost-effectiveness studies needed to improve lives.
The American Brain Foundation is pleased to announce several, two-year fellowships to support clinical research training in the neurosciences.
Susan S. Spencer Clinical Research Training Fellowship in Epilepsy The fellowship is supported by the American Brain Foundation, the American Epilepsy Society, and the Epilepsy Foundation.
Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Libofuscinosis The fellowship is sponsored by the American Brain Foundation and Beyond Batten Disease Foundation
Clinical Research Training Fellowship in Neurotoxins The fellowship is sponsored by the Allergan Foundation.
Two Clinical Research Training Fellowships will be awarded to support clinical research training on the application of neurotoxins towards the treatment of neurological conditions and patient care.
Each fellowship will consist of a commitment of $55,000 per year for two years, plus $10,000 per year for tuition to support formal education in clinical research methodology at the applicant's institution or elsewhere.
Supplementation of the stipend with other grants or by the fellowship institution is permissible, but fellows may not accept other fellowships, similar awards, or have another source of support for more than 50 percent of their research salary while holding an American Brain Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship.
AAN fellowships give researchers more than financial backing—by providing time for research, they are an essential springboard to academic appointments, institutional and NIH career development awards.
