Neurocritical Care Research Funding

A variety of private foundation, industry and government funding sources and initiatives are available to both clinical and basic science/translational research related to neurointensive care.  A summary list of major foundation and government sponsors of this research is provided below.

This list will be updated periodically to include new funding initiatives that may arise, as well as a more complete listing of available resources aimed at funding research involving severe brain injuries.

AAN Practice Research Training Scholarship


The American Academy of Neurology is offering a two-year award to support practice-based research, which is defined as “clinical research that evaluates translation of evidence into best clinical practice.” This may include evaluation of health services, quality of care, implementation of therapies, physician performance, or patient adherence. It is intended to create unique training opportunities previously difficult to access for neurologists. This award aims to recognize the importance of good practice-based research or comparative effectiveness research (CER) and encourage young investigators to use studies to improve health systems and services. The AAN Research Program demonstrates the AAN Board of Directors’ dedication to promoting neurology and neuroscience research and training.
