The Center for NeuroScience will offer annual pilot/seed grants for investigators in neuroscience. Our collaboration with the CCTSI will allow for a more centralized submission and review process. Acceptance of an award from the center requires contributing funds from faculty home departments.
Innovation in Translational Neuroscience
Funding up to $30,000 ($20K from CNS, $10K from department) for one year to support data collection for a novel grant application in translational neuroscience research.
Collaborative Research in Translational Neuroscience
Funding up to $100,000 ($54K from CNS, $26K from collaborating PIs departments, $20K from CCTSI) for one year to support novel collaborative translational neuroscience research between investigators in clinical and basic research departments. This award mechanism is not designed to support pre-existing collaborative projects.
For additional details and to submit and application, please go to the CCTSI website.
