The New York Stem Cell Foundation: Robertson Neuroscience Investigator Award (early career)

NYSCF is soliciting applications from early career investigators for awards in neuroscience. The goal of this initiative is to foster innovative scientists whose pioneering approaches have the potential to transform the field of neuroscience. Applicants are invited to apply from all fields in neuroscience in the 2021 application cycle.

The foundation especially encourages applications from neuroscientists whose research is focused on human systems. This might include research using patient-derived model systems and approaches using samples or data (genomic, epidemiological, imaging, real-world data, etc.) collected from individuals or human populations.

The award provides up to $1.5 million over 5 years. The award does not provide
institutional overhead. NYSCF will accept applications from researchers based at
domestic and international accredited non-profit research and academic institutions.
