The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Foundation's Clinical Research Training Fellowship program provides two-year fellowships to support clinical research training in the neurosciences. Clinical research is defined as "patient-oriented clinical research conducted with human subjects, or research on the causes and consequences of disease in human populations involving material of human origin for which an investigator or colleague directly interacts with human subjects in an outpatient or inpatient setting to clarify a problem in human physiology, pathophysiology, or disease. This area of research includes epidemiologic or behavioral studies, clinical trials, studies of the mechanisms of human disease, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research."

The applicant must be a neurologist in an academic career in clinical research who has completed residency training but is less than five years from completion of residency at the time fellowship begins. Those early in their clinical research careers will be given priority. The applicant must be nominated by the chair of his or her department of neurology, who will submit a letter including assurance that clinical service responsibilities will be restricted to no more than 20 percent of the fellow's time. The applicant department is considered to be the one at which the fellow's training and research program will occur.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 22, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a one-page overview of 1) the training to be provided and 2) the research to be pursued, along with a 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant.
