AANS ANNUAL REPORT

E
xpanding beyond its traditional research grants and
young clinician awards has enabled the Neurosurgery
Research and Education Foundation (NREF) to support
neurosurgical education in another meaningful way, and has
allowed partner companies to continue to support high-quality
education and training in a transparent and independent manner.
In fiscal year 2011, the NREF expanded its ability to support
important education through several new partnerships.
The NREF entered into agreements with DePuy Spine, Inc.,
a Johnson & Johnson Company; Medtronic; Zimmer Spine,
Inc.; and Lanx, Inc. in fiscal year 2011 to provide funding to the
NREF in support of the post-residency fellowship program
with a focus on spine. They also reached agreement in
fiscal year 2011 with Codman & Shurtleff, Inc., a Johnson &
Johnson Company, in support of two programs — the first
focuses on areas including general neurosurgery, pediatric
neurosurgery, neurosurgical oncology, peripheral nerves,
neurocritical care, stereotactic/functional neurosurgery and
other cerebrovascular-related areas; the second is devoted to
endovascular neurosurgery.
The NREF is responsible for all aspects of the fellowship grant
program, including review and approval of grant applications.
The NREF bestows grants based upon established fellowship
program criteria and the needs of the requesting hospital and/or
academic institution. The NREF Educational Grants Committee
(EGC), established in 2009, is comprised of neurosurgeons
that do not receive financial or other support from the medical-
device industry, who review and approve fellowship grant
applications in an independent, unbiased manner. Individuals
serving on the EGC are volunteers and do not receive
compensation from the NREF for their efforts. Corporate
supporters of this program have no role in the selection of
fellows or training institutions that receive funding.
