Fellows pursue independent research interests under the mentorship of one of our Department’s outstanding training faculty members. This experience is supplemented by a weekly translational neuroscience research seminar, and a translational models practicum.
Fellows also attend our highly successful Career and Research Development Seminar (CARDS) series, a substantial proportion of which focuses on developing grant writing skills. Through this series, fellows learn how to develop and managing interdisciplinary collaborations, as well as setting professional priorities. The responsible conduct of research is also included in the training.
In addition, individualized training components are designed to ensure that trainees have established “fluency” in both basic and clinical neuroscience concepts, without which the goal of effective translation cannot be achieved. For example, a series of clinical exposure activities are available to individuals with basic neuroscience training.
Who should apply?
MDs or PhDs who are interested in enhancing their skills in conducting translational neuroscience research, with the intent of transitioning to an independent academic research career.
How many spots are available?
