The Society seeks to attract and train promising young investigators and doctors into the field of MS by supporting the training of postdoctoral fellows in studies related to MS in its efforts to end MS forever. The Society supports fundamental as well as applied studies, non-clinical or clinical in nature, including projects in patient management, care and rehabilitation.
The Society offers postdoctoral fellowship grants to unusually promising recipients of M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent degrees when it appears that the program of training to be supported by the grant will enhance the likelihood that the trainee will perform meaningful and independent research relevant to MS in the future, and obtain a suitable position which will enable them to do so.
To submit a proposal for research support, investigators must first register with our online portal (https://nmss.fluxx.io) and complete a pre-application. Staff will review the pre-application to determine whether the research plan is appropriate and relevant to our goals.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program is supported in part through educational grants provided by EMD Serono and Omnicare.
Deadline 2017: pre-applications due August 9; full applications due August 16, 5:00 pm EST
