As the premier funder of neurosurgical studies, the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) provides funding for studies in basic, translational and patient-oriented clinical research annually for North American investigators. The Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is proud to partner with the NREF to fund a 2022-23 Research Fellowship Grant.
Open to residents only, the NREF Research Fellowship Grant provides funding for neurosurgeons preparing for academic careers as clinician investigators. Applicants must be physicians who are currently accepted into an approved residency training program in neurological surgery within North America.
This year, Mark Youngblood, MD, PhD of Northwestern University has been selected to receive the SBTF’s Research Fellowship Grant. Dr. Youngblood attended the Georgia Institute of Technology for undergraduate studies followed by Yale School of Medicine.
