Clinical Research Grants Committee

The Clinical Research Grants Committee assists the NAN membership by selecting projects that focus on the practice of clinical neuropsychology and professional issues. The program funds work that, because of its clinical and applied emphasis, may be less likely to receive support funded through other grant mechanisms. The program seeks applications that will advance the profession of neuropsychology by enhancing general clinical knowledge and practice approaches. The Committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to the NAN Board of Directors for funding. Routine duties include issuing calls for grant proposals from the NAN membership, coordinating the review process with the committee members, and monitoring the grants throughout the year(s) of award. Click here for more information on applying and previous recipients.

Conflict of Interest Committee

The Task Force on Conflict of Interest (Task Force) was formed by the former Policies and Procedures Committee in December 2002 to respond to concerns of conflict of interest raised by the general membership. Now a standing committee, the committee examines issues of conflict of interest as they related to NAN, and provides recommendations, policies and procedures, and implementation strategies to the Board of Directors. The Committee's focus is on matters of non-trivial conflict of interest and not on more general issues of practice ethics.
