The NINDS Clinical Trials Methodology Course (CTMC) is accepting applications for the 2019 cohort. The goal of CTMC is to help investigators develop scientifically rigorous, yet practical clinical trial protocols. The focus is on investigators who have not previously designed their own prospective, interventional clinical trials.

The residential part of course will be help from July 22 to 25 in Iowa City, IA. Funding for travel (within the U.S.) and accommodations will be provided for participants.


There is a combination of distance learning activities and a required residential course, along with small group mentorship from experienced clinical trialists and biostatisticians.

Who should apply?

Qualified applicants from clinical disciplines focused on neurological disease or injury, along with biostatisticians working on projects with clinical neuroscience researchers should apply.

All preliminary trial ideas are encouraged, but it is required that protocols be focused on the clinical neurosciences. Trainees should have content area mentors to assist them with the science and implementation of their project. A small number of projects may qualify for additional work using clinical trial simulation.


Please check this website for the final application to be released.



The application submission deadline is February 28, 2019 at midnight, Pacific Time.

Application forms and additional details are available on the course website. Early applications may be considered for early acceptance.
