The purpose of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and

Stroke (NINDS) program for re-entry into the neurological sciences is

to assist basic and clinical neurological scientists to re-enter into

active careers in science and academic medicine related to the

neurological sciences.  The program is designed to provide the re-entry

opportunity to individuals who have experienced an interruption of

three to eight years in their careers.  It is a postdoctoral award

(K01) designed to support individuals who would have high potential for

careers as independent investigators in basic or clinical research in

the neurological sciences following a period of support that will allow

the individual to update his/her research skills.  These awards would

allow the individual to pursue a research project that would enable

him/her to update research skills, learn new techniques, and obtain any

other experience necessary.  This effort may be complemented by taking

courses appropriate to the research objectives of the award.  The award

provides salary for the awardee of up to $50,000 per year and a

research allowance of up to $20,000 per year.
