The GBS CIDP Foundation International
is pleased to announce a competition for the first Benson Clinical Research Fellowship.
The aim is to provide funds (up to $150k per year for three years) to enable clinicians or non-clinical scientists-in-training (or having recently completed training) to engage in a substantial research project in the field of inflammatory neuropathy at a center or centers of excellence. Preference will be given to candidates who intend to pursue a long-term career in this field.
"AANEM is pleased to support the work of patient groups and encourage research to find cures for neuromuscular diseases," said Shirlyn Adkins, JD, executive director.
