Event description


Workshop Description

The N2 Workshop will focus on the basic science and clinical perspectives of two major neuroscience health areas:

Movement Disorders

Each session will include the following:

15 minute resident clinical case presentation
30 minute scientist or clinician-scientist presentation on fundamentals of research into the disease
30 minute round table question generation – each table will include clinical and science trainees, to discuss what question to target within the disease area of interest and begin discussing how to develop a grant
90 minute group discussion / presentation of individual grant ideas from each table

1 session will be on grant writing, focusing on selling your research questions and engaging collaborators

The primary objectives of the sessions will be:

  1. For Neurology and Neurosurgery residents to explore basic concepts that underpin basic clinical Neurological and Neurosurgical problems

  2. For Neuroscience graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to learn of how common Neurological and Neurosurgical problems present to clinicians and what challenges they bring with them

  3. To develop specific research questions around each of the main themes of the meeting

  4. To explore principles of grant preparation and writing: how to get your idea funded!
