The University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute is providing a new seed grant opportunity to its faculty, through a generous gift from the Hillman Foundation and other funds. The Brain Institute anticipates awarding three grants of up to $200,000 each, to support Pitt neuroscientists as they develop research projects that are likely to be competitive for future large-scale funding. This opportunity was sparked by heightened interest in brain science that has lead to recent increases in federal and private funding for neuroscience research.
Five candidates were selected to submit a full proposal, from among the 18 scientists across the upper and lower campuses of the University who submitted Letters of Intent. Funding of three projects is scheduled to start on September 1.
