Finding a way to stop MS, restore function and end MS forever will require a cadre of well-trained scientists engaged in MS-related research. The Society’s Career Transition Fellowship addresses this need by fostering the development and productivity of young scientists who have potential to make significant contributions to MS research and help ensure the future and stability of MS research. The Career Transition Fellowship targets current postdoctoral trainees who demonstrate both commitment and exceptional potential to conduct MS-related research. The award provides approximately $550,000 over five years to support a two-year period of advanced postdoctoral training in MS research and the first three years of research support in a new faculty appointment.
The application process for this award involves two levels of review, preliminary and full applications. To submit a proposal for research support, investigators must first register with our Apply Online site (https://nmss.fluxx.io) and complete a pre-application. Staff will review the pre-applications and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
Pre-application deadline: August 19, 2020, 5p.m. Eastern
Full application deadline: August 26, 2020, 5p.m. Eastern
(NOTE: for 2020, the normally required early pre-application letters will be waived)
