The Dana Foundation Program in Brain and Immuno-Imaging
The Dana Foundation’s imaging research program focuses on improving human brain and brain-immune functioning in health and disease. Funds support pilot-testing by investigators who are early in their research careers of promising but high-risk innovative ideas that have direct clinical application and that, when successful, are competitive for larger scale support from other funders. Grant amounts may be up to $200,000 total, payable over three years. Applicants will be informed within ten weeks whether they will be invited to prepare full proposals. The first awards will be announced in July 2010, with subsequent award announcements made during the remainder of the year. A more detailed description of the program and application process can be found at http://www.dana.org/grants/detail.aspx?id=1264. Interested applicants should use the form below to submit a 1-2 page prospectus and a CV as a single PDF document to the Vice Chancellor for Research.
The internal deadline for these materials is 5 PM December 30, 2009. This will allow time for selection of our campus nominee in advance of the Dana foundation deadline of Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at Noon (EST).
