Brain Research Foundation Seed Grant Program

Brain Research Foundation is inviting eligible US institutions to nominate one (1) faculty member to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program by January 7, 2020. To be eligible, the PI must be a full-time Assistant or Associate Professor working in the field of neuroscience.

Brain Research Foundation’s Seed Grant Program was founded in 1981 with the goal of providing start-up money for new and innovative research projects that have the potential to become competitive for an NIH grant or other external funding sources. Our goal is to have this grant succeed in opening future opportunities for research, collaboration and scientific advancement.
