AUGS Jr. Faculty Research Network

AUGS, with the support of the PFD Research Foundation, has created a multi-center research network for AUGS junior faculty members. In its inaugural year, the Junior Faculty Research Network (JFRN) will conduct a study focused on neuromodulation, however topics may vary in future years.  An Advisory Board of senior advisors will oversee the progress of the Network. Monthly conference calls will include research training and education topics in addition to facilitating protocol development and implementation of a multi-center research project focused on neuromodulation.
