The 2016 Clinician-Scientist Development Awards support clinical research leading to discovery of new therapies in specific disease areas.
Clinician-Scientist Development Three-Year Award in Multiple Sclerosis
The American Academy of Neurology, the American Brain Foundation, and the National MS Society are pleased to announce a three-year award to support the training of young physicians committed to a career in academic medicine in an environment where problems in multiple sclerosis are addressed with the most current scientific tools. The salary is approximately $75,000 per year (stipend from National MS Society based on postgraduate level plus $25,000 from the American Academy of Neurology and the American Brain Foundation). We invite our outstanding senior residents to develop a clinically-relevant project at a US institution with a mentor who has experience in MS research.
Clinician-Scientist Development Three-Year Award in ALS Research
The American Academy of Neurology, the American Brain Foundation, and the ALS Association are pleased to announce a three-year ClinicianScientist Development Award to support a clinician scientist’s research related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The award aims to recognize the importance of good clinical research and encourage young investigators in clinical studies. The three-year award will consist of an annual salary of $75,000 plus $5,000 in educational expenses, per year. 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 during the first year of the fellowship. If similar awards are obtained after completion of the first year of the fellowship, fellows are required to submit a revised budget for review or may need to forfeit the rest of the award. Only direct costs will be funded by this award.
