by Regina Sester | Dec 07, 2017
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.


The goal of the Neurorehabilitation and Restorative Neuroscience Training Network (NRNTN) fellowship is to prepare individuals for research careers that can include defining the mechanisms underlying neural plasticity and recovery of function following CNS injury, identifying and implementing methods to enhance that recovery, and/or influencing health care and policy to benefit individuals with disabilities. 

The specific aims of the NRNTN fellowship are:

1) To provide outstanding research training and mentorship for clinical scholars in neurorehabilitation

2) To create a community of scholars

3) To prepare rehabilitation clinician investigators for sustained and productive academic careers in Neurorehabilitation

There is a two stage application process, the first stage is due December 15.  The application instructions can be found at:
