The Tourette Association of America supports research and career development through the mechanisms described below:
1. TAA Annual Young Investigator Award
The Tourette Association of America (TAA) aims to encourage early career researchers to invest their efforts and expertise in increasing our biological understanding of Tourette Syndrome (TS), pursing clinical research aimed at improving patient care, and developing and testing new therapies.
2. TAA/American Brain Foundation Partnership – Clinical Research Training Scholarship in Tourette Syndrome
The Tourette Association of America is committed to making a difference in the lives of patients by supporting cutting edge clinical research and encouraging the next generation of Tourette researchers which is why we’ve partnered with the American Academy of Neurology/American Brain Foundation to support a 2019 Clinical Research Training Scholarship in Tourette Syndrome.
3. Support for Research Consortia and Collaborative Research Projects
TAA has historically provided critical seed funding to research consortia working on large issues relevant to TS, including the TAA genetics consortium, neuroimaging consortium, behavioral sciences consortium, and deep brain stimulation registry.
