Research Training Opportunities

If you wish to pursue a career in clinical or basic research after completing your residency, we provide the necessary infrastructure and formal training to promote your success.

Clinical Neuroscientist Training

There is an increasing gap between our ability to treat neurologic diseases and our growing understanding of normal and diseased nervous system functions. The Clinical Neuroscientist Training Program is a NIH sponsored program aimed at accelerating the career development of clinician-scientists. 

Clinical and Basic Neuroscience Training

This mentored research training program in basic and clinical neuroscience has been funded continuously by the NIH/NINDS since 1982. The continued success of this research program is founded on providing comprehensive research training and mentoring to both Ph.D.'s and M.D.'s interested in uncovering and/or targeting molecular mechanisms associated with diseases affecting the nervous system. 

Sleep and Genetics/Genomics Training

As part of a national effort is to develop a cadre of new investigators in genetic/genomic approaches to sleep disorders, the University of Michigan Center for Sleep Science offers a specialized training program in sleep research. The program brings together lead investigators from across the country, utilizing a tailored curriculum, and leveraging mentorship from top institutions.
