Grants of $35,000 to USA neurology residents and epilepsy fellow for a clinical research program related to the care of individuals with epilepsy. Funding is intended for a one-year program during which trainees will have a first-hand opportunity to learn about clinical research and be involved with an ongoing rigorous research endeavor. The project description must contain the research training plan and the mentorship plan. Grant funds may be used for research expenses, coursework/training, or to support up to 25% of the applicant's salary and fringe benefits.
The Foundation recognizes that there is limited feasibility in an epilepsy trainee getting a new study off the ground and completed within the course of a year due to administrative issues from IRB approvals to recruitment of participants. However, they believe that it is critical for clinical trainees to be able to conduct research and have exposure to clinical investigation for their professional development. Therefore, the Foundation provides this opportunity for trainees to perform research under the umbrella of an ongoing research study, and to be mentored by one of the senior investigators on the study team who will provide didactic training and support during the course of the award.
Research studies would fall under the T1-T4 types of clinical research as defined by new Institute of Medicine and Clinical Translational Study Awards. The goal is for the trainee to perform original research but also to learn research methodology from experts. This apprenticeship program is a way for awardees to gain exposure to ongoing clinical investigation as well as develop scientific skills. They may also be able to obtain preliminary data for future grant submissions.
Examples of research studies could be but are not limited to:
The application must identify a mentor who will work with the applicant to create an individualized training program that could consist of both didactic training and a supervised research experience designed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills in the chosen area of research and foster the career goals of the candidate.
