2024 PNS Call for Training Grant Applicants – Application Deadline 31 January

Dec 23, 2023 | Archive

In line with our mission, one of our society’s overarching aims is to bolster the careers of researchers and foster excellence in peripheral nerve research, including clinical, translational, and basic science.

This PNS funded grant opportunity is designed to provide support for two candidates:

  • It will enable a junior clinical investigator to acquire or consolidate expertise in clinical observational studies, clinical outcome measures, and/or clinical diagnostics and therapeutic development.
  • It will empower a junior scientist or clinician-scientist to develop expertise and knowledge in peripheral nerve research by addressing key questions in Schwann cell/axonal biology and/or by elucidating relevant disease pathomechanisms.

The selected recipients of these training grants will conduct their research activity within a Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) member research center where they have not previously received training.

We are pleased to offer institutional funding of up to $75,000 USD to be further disbursed to each grant recipient annually, to cover their salary, and living expenses. All projects must commence by 31 January the year following the award of the grant.
