Training Grant Opportunities
This training program in basic and clinical neuroscience in the Department of Neurology is supported by the National Institutes of Health and has 4 fellow positions available per year. 35,000 square feet of laboratory space are available for basic research, and 20 faculty members, most of whom are both clinical neurologists and basic or clinician scientists, serve as preceptors. We train physicians and basic scientists to conduct basic and clinical neuroscience research. We offer basic science training in cell and molecular neuroscience, neurochemistry, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, and neurogenetics, and clinical science training in the dementias, neuromuscular diseases, movement disorders, sleep disorders and neurogenetics. Clinical training involves evaluation of clinical disorders, clinical-pathological correlations, neuropharmacological interventions, anatomical and functional imaging, including positron emission tomography studies, epidemiological studies, and experimental therapeutics. Training is in the individual laboratory or clinical program of a faculty member but is supplemented by interdisciplinary and collaborative project meetings, seminars, and appropriate course work. All trainees in clinical science programs are required to enroll in the School of Public Health 's Masters Program in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis. Postdoctoral trainees are neurologists or physicians in related fields who have completed clinical training and select a basic or clinical research career, and biomedical scientists who seek training in basic neuroscience research. Efforts are made to recruit qualified women and minority students for training at all levels.
