ALS Translational Medicine Fellowship

ALS Translational Medicine Fellowship

This is a 2-year fellowship, emphasizing clinical care, translational research, molecular pathology, gene therapies, genome science and molecular biology.

Start date: Generally July of each calendar year (but rolling admissions will be considered)

The program is designed for clinically trained neurologists who wish to join the current revolution in neurobiology and genomics, and learn the science that will guide the next generation of clinical neurology.

Already declared physician-scientists are of course perfectly matched for this fellowship, but candidates who are not so trained are not disadvantaged and encouraged to apply and get connected.

The fellowship will provide a mix of clinical, translational, neuropathological, genomic and molecular biological training and clinical trials methodology. During the first year, there will be broad exposure when we will help the fellow define his or her main interests and goals, and then foster his or her differentiation during the rest of the fellowship. A third year may be elected dependent on interests and funding.

The UC San Diego environment is rich and supportive and the fellows are expected to develop independence, creativity and confidence and to have full collaborations and interactions with basic scientists. The aim is to train physician-scientists for academic and pharmaceutical industry-directed medicine.
