Scientific Innovations Award

Brain Research Foundation (BRF) Annual Scientific Innovations Award supports innovative discovery science in both basic and clinical neuroscience. This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, cutting edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators.

This funding opportunity is for projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings in a very short time frame. It is expected that investigations supported by these grants will yield high impact findings and result in major grant applications and significant publications in high impact journals. The deadline to submit the nominated Letter of Intent is Friday, June 22, 2018.
