ABN Clinical Research Training Fellowship
About the Fellowship
The ABN has assisted charities since 2009 in organising clinical research training fellowships, awarded to trainees who want to study an aspect of clinical neuroscience in depth for three or four years and obtain an MD or PhD degree. The first cycle of fellowships is now drawing to a close. Please click here to view previous successful fellows.
In 2014 the ABN launched its own Clinical Research Training Fellowship fund. We have been encouraged by the understanding and commitment to the fellowship fund demonstrated by our members and by other friends of the fellowship. In May 2015 members voted to include a voluntary donation to the Fellowhip fund as part of theirr annual subscription. We are grateful for the generous donations already received and, with others promised, we have a good base upon which to build a successful
Five fellows were appointed in 2015 and In 2016 the fellowship scheme was able to offer 4 new fellowships, one funded by the ABN, one by the Guarantors of Brain and two by the Patrick Berthoud Charitable Trust.
The 2017 fellowship attracted 21 applicants and interviews will take place on 22 March 2017.
