Request for applications: Grand Challenges in Neuroscience

August 13, 2019

The Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience will award up to a total of $1,000,000 to six to 10 project teams for a one-year project period. Additional funding may be available upon completion of agreed upon milestones. Purdue faculty members are eligible to apply. The RFA is the result of the Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience (PIIN) hosted a Life Sciences-Engineering Workshop Series to identify major problems in neuroscience that would best be addressed by an interdisciplinary approach spanning the life sciences and engineering. Research areas that have been discussed include addiction, neurodegenerative disorders, hearing science, traumatic brain injury, neurocircuitry, autism, and the gut brain microbiome, although proposals relevant to other areas of neuroscience are also of interest.
