Physician scientists (scientists with MDs, versus PhDs) are vital to research involving persons with MS. The National MS Society and American Brain Foundation have joined to support training for young clinicians committed to careers in academic medicine with an emphasis on MS clinical research. The NMSS-ABF MS Clinician-Scientist Development Award supports 3 years of research training in an environment where talented young clinicians address problems in MS with the most current scientific tools.
In order to submit a proposal for research support, investigators must first register with our apply online site (www.mssocietyapplyonline.org) and complete a pre-application. Staff of the Research Programs Department will review the pre-application to determine whether the research plan is appropriate and relevant to our goals and, for this award, the goals of the American Brain Foundation.
