Individual National Research Service Awards (F32) are made to applicants seeking postdoctoral research training in the basic or clinical neurological sciences. Before beginning the proposed fellowship, an applicant must earn a doctoral degree. In addition to biomedical research training, the proposed study must include an opportunity to conduct research. The training plan should provide an opportunity for research scientists and clinicians to broaden their scientific background or to extend their potential for research in health-related areas. Training areas are generally the same as those identified earlier for institutional training grants. Before formally submitting their applications, prospective fellows must arrange for an appointment to an appropriate institution and acceptance by a sponsor who will supervise the training and research experience. The application must document that staff and facilities are available to provide a high-quality training opportunity. The application should emphasize opportunities for research training and broadening scientific competence.
