ANF Development Grant

Grant Type

Yohei Harada, MD


Duke University, Durham, NC


Project Summary

Dr. Harada wants to see if neuromuscular (NM) ultrasound (US) and electric impedance myography can serve as alternative assessment tools to accelerate future trials by lowering the number of patients needed to detect improvement and detecting change more quickly. Dr. Harada is using the development grant to evaluate the utility of NM US and electric impedance myography in detecting changes in nerves and muscles over 2 years.

  • Up to $50,000 for up to 2 years. Total award $100,000 including indirect costs.
  • Complimentary AANEM Annual Meeting registration in the year the research is presented. This travel award does not need to be included in the grant application. It is paid above in the $50,000 award.
  • Complimentary AANEM membership during funding.

“I appreciate the AANEM and ANF’s support of my career development and research project. Writing the grant application itself was a great opportunity to develop my skillset as a clinical researcher.”
