ADVANCING NEUROSURGICAL RESEARCH
TODAY FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
A
s a premier funder of neurosurgical studies and education, the Neurosurgery
Research and Education Foundation (NREF) provides fellowship funding in
basic neuroscience and neurosurgical programs in North America. The NREF
is responsible for all aspects of the post-residency clinical fellowship grants program
including review and approval of grant applications.
Established in 2009, the Educational Grants Committee (EGC) is composed of AANS
member neurosurgeons who do not receive financial or other support from the medical-
device industry; these committee members review and approve grant applications in an
independent and 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.
Post-residency Clinical Fellowships
The NREF works with companies to support high-quality education and training in spine surgery, endovascular
neurosurgery, general neurosurgery, and a number of neurosurgical subspecialty areas in an independent and
transparent manner. We proudly recognize corporate support for funding of the 2012-2013 post-residency clinical
