The Clinical Translational Fellowship at Pfizer provides a unique opportunity for a board-certified or board-eligible physician scientist, trained in Neurology or Psychiatry, to spend a period of up to two years working with the Pfizer Neuroscience Research Unit (NSRU) in Cambridge, Massachusetts and performing clinical activities at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The recipient of this fellowship will have an opportunity to work on different projects as a member of the Pfizer Computational Neuromedicine and Human Biology team, which helps to bridge the Pre-Clinical Science and Clinical Development teams.
