The University of Michigan Program for Neurology Research & Discovery (PNR&D) Emerging Scholars Program intends to assure that there is a solid future for our next generation of medical science leaders and the many cures and treatments that will be their legacy.

The PNR&D has talented young scientists who require funding to pursue innovative approaches to the treatment of disease and build the credentials they need to secure long-term financial support for their research from private foundations and the National Institutes of Health.
Emerging Scholars funding typically involves a $150,000 commitment, which is spread equally over three years. During that time, donors receive biannual reports from their Emerging Scholar about the research they are supporting, as well as an opportunity to meet with their Emerging Scholar to learn first-hand the impact their gift has made in the battle against disease.
Support for the Emerging Scholars Program also may be made through the University of Michigan’s endowment. A gift of $1,000,000 allows for the establishment of a permanent Emerging Scholar Fund, which can support young scientists working in a designated field of medicine. This allows a donor’s commitment to medical research to live on in perpetuity.
