The Neurorehabilitation and Restorative Neuroscience Training Network (NRNTN)

We are recruiting for our next cohort of scholars. We have a two-stage application process. For details, see The Neurorehabilitation and Restorative
Neuroscience Training Network (NRNTN) provides outstanding research training and mentorship for
clinical scholars in Neurorehabilitation and prepares rehabilitation clinician investigators for
sustained and productive academic careers in Neurorehabilitation. NRNTN is funded by the National
Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, NIH/NICHD.

This early career development and mentorship program seeks to prepare individuals with advanced
neurorehabilitation related degrees (MD, MD/PhD neurologists, neurosurgeons, geriatricians,
physiatrists and other physicians interested in neurorehabilitation, physical therapists, occupational
therapists, speech language pathologists and others) who will be in a position to define the
mechanisms  underlying neural plasticity and recovery of function following CNS injury, to identify
and implement methods to enhance that recovery, and to influence health care and policy to benefit
individuals with disabilities.  The NRNTN brings together a regional network of 8 leading academic
clinicians and scientists in Neurorehabilitation to provide mentored research training and career
development for junior faculty level clinicians in Neurorehabilitation. 

Our leadership team is composed of members from several clinical disciplines who are
accomplished investigators:

 Georgetown University Medical Center
 MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital
 Johns Hopkins University/Kennedy Krieger Institute
 Cornell University/Burke Neurologic Institute
 Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions
 Harvard University
 Massachusetts Institute of Technology
