Basic Clinical Translational Research Fellowship

This combined fellowship is an individualized fellowship program aimed at M.D.s or M.D./Ph.D.s interested in basic research applicable to neurological diseases. The program is intended for clinicians with basic laboratory experience who wish to gain further training in laboratory-based research while improving clinical skills or for clinicians interested in emerging disciplines in neurological clinical research, such as neuroimaging. The successful candidate will spend the majority of time in basic research with a mentor, but will spend one day each week in clinical activities, such as working in a specialty clinic with a clinical supervisor and attending rounds and clinical conferences. Interested applicants should identify potential mentors from the NINDS faculty list and send an outline of their career goals, along with a curriculum vitae, addressed to the NINDS Clinical Director at NINDSClinicalDirector2@ninds.nih.gov. Applications will be evaluated for programmatic and scientific appropriateness by the Scientific and Clinical Directors. For more information on our basic sciences laboratories, please visit our website Neuroscience@NIH and click on the Faculty or Research Facility tabs.
