Log in to Add to My Schedule


The Research Careers Reimagined Course Planning Subcommittee, chaired by Laura J. Balcer, MD, MSCE, FANA, Professor of Neurology, Population Health and Ophthalmology, New York University, is offering a Research Careers Reimagined Course (RCR), which is taking the place of the prior Translational and Clinical Research Course (TCRC). Dr. Balcer notes that:

“The RCR Course 2022 is an update to what has already been an outstanding and historically meaningful ANA program. As course directors for the RCR, we, along with ANA leadership, recognize that promoting flexibility and creativity with regard to sources of funding for investigation and academic pursuits in neurology will not only advance our field but will represent an acknowledgement of the diverse talents and interests of our next generation of leaders. We are honored and grateful for the opportunity to offer this unique program.”

This course is complimentary for anyone registering for the full ANA2022 program. For anyone wishing to participate solely in the RCR Course, the cost is $125.

CME will be offered.

Space is limited, so please register early! For more information, please visit the RCR page.
