The 2013 AASM Young Investigator Research Forum provides researchers beginning their careers with the opportunity for collegial interaction with successful senior faculty members across a broad spectrum of clinical sleep research. Recent projections show an upcoming shortage of clinical sleep researchers, and in the current climate, research funding is difficult to obtain. The AASM Young Investigator Forum aims to provide guidance, tactics and strategy necessary for a successful career in clinical sleep research. Applications will be accepted through December 3, 2012.
