PDF Partners with AANF to Present Fellowship
- Nov 08 2006
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) and the American Academy of Neurology Foundation (AANF) are pleased to announce a two year Clinician Scientist Development Award of $75,000 per year. This grant is intended to support PDF and AANF’s mutual interest in training outstanding residency-level clinicians in the field of Parkinson’s research.
The PDF-AANF Clinician Scientist Development Award will foster the productivity of young research clinician scientists who have demonstrated the potential to make significant contributions to Parkinson’s disease clinical research.
“We’re thrilled to work with AANF on this exciting new venture that further reinforces our commitment to recruiting top talent to choose a career in Parkinson’s clinical research and care,” said Dr. Stanley Fahn, PDF’s Scientific Director. “This grant is in line with several of PDF’s other programs that are designed to ensure that Parkinson’s research is being conducted by the best and brightest in the field.”
The grant will support two years of research training at an institution where talented clinicians focus on Parkinson’s science. It is expected that upon completion of the program, participants will be committed to a research or combined clinical/research career in Parkinson’s and will be in line to direct robust research programs. The second year of funding will depend on results of a progress report from the first year’s work.
Applications are evaluated by PDF’s Scientific Review Committee and the Clinical Research Subcommittee of the Science Committee of the AAN. The application deadline is February 1, 2007 for a July 1 start date. More information, eligibility criteria and an application will soon be available at www.pdf.org.
