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) is conducting a study focused on neuromodulation, however topics may vary in future years. An Advisory Board of senior advisors oversee the progress of the Network. Monthly conference calls include research training and education topics in addition to facilitating protocol development and implementation of a multi-center research project focused on neuromodulation.
