Trainee and Early Career Resources

TIGRR (Training in Grantsmanship for Rehabilitation Research)
We bring together a nationally recognized group of mentors and consultants as faculty, including representatives of federal funding agencies. The workshop provides guidance in grant writing, clinical trial design, biostatistics, collaboration, grantsmanship, budgeting, and career development through lectures and individual consultation.

American Neurological Association-NINDS Career development symposium
The ANA-NINDS Career Development Symposium is designed to provide you with the essential tools to enhance your ability to write successful grant proposals and to obtain grant funding from NIH and other institutions. This course is part of the American Neurological Association’s Annual Meeting each year. 

ANA Translational and Clinical Research Course
The American Neurological Association hosts a wide range of educational programs. These programs seek to enhance the development and success of those pursuing a career in academic neurology at all levels. There are educational offerings to benefit those at the beginning stages of their career as well as those looking for best practices in Chair level positions. These programs seek to enhance attendee's success in the field of academic neurology and to contribute to the overall education of neurologists and neuroscientists.

NINDS Clinical Trials Methodology Course (CTMC)
an intensive, engaging program designed to help junior investigators develop scientifically rigorous, yet practical clinical trial protocols, and to focus on early consideration of funding mechanisms as a key trial planning activity.

General professional development videocasts from NIH’s Office of Intramural Training and Education
These presentations were developed for an audience of NIH trainees.  Sometimes they will contain information that is very specific to trainees at the NIH.  In general, however, we believe that you will find most of the information helpful wherever you are working.
