McKnight Foundation: Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Awards
Deadline: Letters of Intent Due December 6, 2021
Category: Neuroscience; Technology,
This program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences. It does not support research based primarily on existing techniques.
The Endowment Fund is especially interested in how technology may be used or adapted to monitor, manipulate, analyze, or model brain function at any level, from the molecular to the entire organism. Technology may take any form, from biochemical tools to instruments to software and mathematical approaches. Because the program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences, research based primarily on existing techniques will not be considered.
A goal of the Technological Innovations awards is to foster collaboration between the neurosciences and other disciplines; therefore, collaborative and cross-disciplinary applications are explicitly invited.
A candidate for a McKnight Technological Innovation in Neuroscience Award must work as an independent investigator at a not-for-profit research institution in the United States, and must hold a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher. Those holding other titles such as Research Professor, Adjunct Professor, Professor Research Track, Visiting Professor or Instructor are not eligible. If the host institution does not use professorial titles, a letter from a senior institutional official (e.g. Dean or Director of Research) must confirm that the applicant has his/her own dedicated institutional resources, laboratory space, and/or facilities.
Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
