R25 NINDS Research Education Program
Our department is a recipient of the R25 NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) grant for research education programs for residents, an award that allows interested and qualified trainees to start research training during the last year of residency. The selected trainee receives six to nine months of protected research time during the last two years of residency training in conjunction with mentorship by an experienced faculty member in submitting a K junior investigator grant. The research track can comprise either clinical or bench work. The grant also provides funding for post-residency research fellowship training.
