The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Foundation offers Clinical Research Training Fellowships to support clinical research training in the neurosciences of neurologists and clinical investigators who are interested in academic careers in clinical research and have recently completed residency training and have not had formal clinical research training. For the purpose of this fellowship, clinical research is defined as "patient-oriented research conducted with human subjects, or translational research specifically designed to develop treatments or enhance diagnosis of neurological disease. These areas of research include epidemiologic or behavioral studies, clinical trials, studies of disease mechanisms, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research." Disease-related studies not directly involving humans or human tissue also are encouraged if the primary goal is the development of therapies, diagnostic tests, or other tools to prevent or mitigate neurological diseases.

The applicant must be an AAN member who is interested in an academic career in clinical research, has completed residency or a postdoctoral fellowship (for a Ph.D.) within the past five years, and has not had formal clinical research training. Those early in their clinical research careers will be given priority. The applicant must be nominated by the chair of the department of neurology 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 21, 2007. 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.
