Applications are now being accepted for the 2012 AASM Young Investigator Research Forum. The forum will provide young investigators the opportunity for collegial interaction with established senior faculty members across the broad spectrum of clinical sleep research, as well as NIH scientific and program officers. There is a projected future shortage of clinical sleep researchers, and research funding is difficult to obtain. This retreat will provide guidance, tactics and strategies to help improve the chances of achieving a successful career in clinical sleep research. Please visit the AASM website to download the application for the 2012 Young Investigator Research Forum.  The application process must be completed by Friday, Dec. 2, 2011.
