Established in 2005, the New York Stem Cell Foundation is dedicated to curing major contemporary diseases through stem cell research. In addition to performing and conducting original research, the foundation acts as an international hub for thinkers, laboratories, and institutions working to maximize impact for actual patients.
With the goal of supporting innovative scientists who have the potential to transform fundamental understanding of the brain, the foundation is accepting applications for its Neuroscience Investigator Awards.
Applications are encouraged in the areas of developmental, cellular, cognitive, and translational neuroscience, broadly interpreted. Applicants need not be working in areas related to stem cells.
Under the RFA, grants of $1.5 million dollars over five years will be awarded.
The program is open to national and international researchers based at an accredited academic or nonprofit institution. Eligible candidates must have completed an MD, PhD, or DPhil; be within five years of starting a professorship or comparable position; be able to demonstrate research and supervisory experience; and have a publication record.
See the New York Stem Cell Foundation website for complete guidelines and application instructions.
