Brain Research Foundation 2014 Scientific Innovations Award Competition (SIA)

Program Description:

The Brain Research Foundation has invited eligible US institutions to nominate one senior faculty member to submit a Letter of Intent for the Scientific Innovations Award (SIA). The Brain Research Foundation’s Scientific Innovations Award Program provides funding for innovative science in both basic and clinical neuroscience. This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, exploratory, cutting edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators.

The objective of the SIA is to support projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings. 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.
