2016 CURE Taking Flight Award

Modified: November 3, 2015

Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) seeks to promote the careers of young investigators to allow them to develop a research focus independent of their mentor(s). Researchers may propose basic or clinical studies, but this award mechanism is NOT intended to support clinical trials. Research that involves collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach is desirable. Applicant will be required to discuss how this avenue of research is independent from his or her mentor’s research, and will lead him or her to a path of independent epilepsy research. CURE encourages studies that will provide new directions for epilepsy therapy, prevention and, ultimately, a cure and that will allow applicants to collect the data necessary to support a National Institutes of Health grant application.

Individuals from any country are eligible to apply; you do not have to be a US citizen or working in the US to apply for this award. All materials must be submitted in English.
