These awards support scientists working on new and unusual approaches to understanding brain function. The 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. Collaborative and cross-disciplinary applications are invited.
Established in 1999, the Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Awards provide up to $100,000 per year for two years. Each year, up to three awards are given. Funds may be used toward a variety of research activities but not the recipient's salary.
