NCS Research Training GRant

The Neurocritical Care Society (NCS) is pleased to announce a training fellowship for physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, and others involved with neurocritical care. This program addresses the increasing need for early research career support in neurocritical care. The direct goal of this program is to foster initial support to individuals with high potential to become independent researchers. Specific goals of this funding mechanism pertain the development of mentorship ties, protection of research time, the pursuit of research training, and generation of preliminary data necessary to apply for subsequent scientist development training grants. Projects with a clinical or translational research focus are welcomed.   The present award supports research efforts throughout a 12-month period, which will allow effective competition for subsequent training opportunities.  It is expected that at the end of the award, the trainee will be in the process of submitting applications for national, peer-reviewed funding mechanisms to continue the research and research training.
