ANNUAL REPORT
NREF Research Fellowships
The mission of the NREF is to enhance lives by advancing neurosurgical care. The NREF is dedicated to
providing education to neurosurgeons at all stages of their careers, as well as funding research into new
and existing neurosurgical treatments, in order to identify links between best practices and improved
outcomes in patient care.
Through public donations, corporate support, and donations from allied neurosurgical groups, the NREF
supports endeavors that impact the lives of those suffering from epilepsy, stroke, brain tumors, spinal
disorders, sports-related head injuries, lower back pain and Parkinson’s disease. Since 1980, more than $7
million in grant funding has been awarded to more than 200 residents and young clinician investigators in
more than 50 academic institutions.
NREF research grant funding is made possible by matching funds from allied surgical groups. These grants
help provide support for young researchers working on potential treatments and cures for neurosurgical
diseases and conditions that affect millions. The NREF would like to thank the following groups that helped
support NREF Research Grants and Young Clinician Investigator Awards in fiscal year 2014.
