Research Grants


The AANEM Foundation for Research & Education provides research grant funding for projects related to neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine. More than $325,000 has been awarded to 10 research projects to date.

Electrodiagnostics and the Total Neuropathy Score

Recently, the AANEM Foundation accepted grant proposals for a large-scale research project. Its goal was to fund research with high potential to impact patient care through the identification of important relationships between EDX measures or imaging modalities with respect to the clinical or functional outcomes of people with neuromuscular disorders.

The Research Committee reviewed several quality proposals, and at its fall 2012 meeting, the Foundation Board approved a grant in the amount of $294,347 for a research project entitled, Electrodiagnostics and the Total Neuropathy Score: A Means to Guide Chemotherapy Dose Modification. The study is a large prospective-based cohort study of those treated with high risk drugs that examines chemotherapeutic-induced neuropathy. The primary investigator is Jeffrey A. Allen, MD, Northwestern University Department of Neurology.
