NINDS encourages applications for the Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award. This announcement is made together with 19 other NIH components.

The objectives of this award are to: encourage research-oriented clinicians to develop independent research skills and gain experience in advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to become independent investigators; increase the pool of clinical researchers who can conduct patient-oriented studies; and support the career development of investigators who have made a commitment to focus on patient-oriented research.  It provides salary and research support for a sustained period of “protected time” (3 to 5 years).

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, director, Training and Career Development, NINDS, at 301-496-4188 or korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-194.html.
