Purpose

The Foundation is currently interested in basic research in neurobiology, defined as follows: Invertebrate and vertebrate (excluding clinical) neurobiology, specifically investigations of neural mechanisms involved in sensory, motor, and other complex functions of the whole organism as these relate to behavior. The overall goal should be to better understand behavioral output or brain mechanisms of behavior. 

Research grants are available to established scientists of all ages working at accredited institutions in the United States. Research grants will not be awarded to investigators who have already received, or expect to receive, substantial support from other sources, even if it is for an unrelated purpose.

The applicant must meet all three of the following eligibility requirements in order to participate in the application process:

  1. Appropriate title - must be an Assistant Professor (or higher). If the institution does not use this title, a letter from the department chair confirming the applicant’s eligibility is required.
  2. Status - must hold Principal Investigator status.
  3. Independent - must be considered an “independent investigator” with his/her own dedicated lab space or with lab space independent of another investigator.
