Research Careers Reimagined Course (RCR2024)

Developed by the Research Careers Reimagined (RCR) Course Planning Subcommittee, the 2024 RCR Course explores a variety of funding pathways for researchers in neurology from traditional mechanisms for funding from NIH to pharma. Topics to be covered include the impact of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, communication through social media, and academic publishing.

This course is open to Instructors, Assistant Professors, Trainees, Residents, and Postdoc Fellows only.

This program is made possible by the generous support of Wiley, publisher of the American Neurological Association's journals Annals of Neurology and Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology
