The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience supports innovative research designed to bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated. To this end, the McKnight Neurobiology of Brain Disorders Award (NBD Award) assists scientists working to apply the knowledge achieved through basic research to human brain disorders.
የሽልማት ፈቶች አጠቃቀም
We are interested in proposals that address the biology and mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric disorders. This includes proposals that provide mechanistic insights into neurological functions at the synaptic, cellular, molecular, genetic or behavioral level across different species, including humans and vertebrate and invertebrate model organisms. We are particularly interested in proposals that incorporate fundamentally new approaches and those that provide potential paths for therapeutic interventions. Collaborative and cross-disciplinary applications are encouraged.
Applicants for the McKnight NBD Award must be independent investigators at not-for-profit research institutions in the United States, and must hold a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher. Those holding other titles such as Research Professor, Adjunct Professor, Professor Research Track, Visiting Professor or Instructor are not eligible. If the host institution does not use professorial titles, a letter from a senior institutional official (e.g. Dean or Director of Research) must confirm that the applicant has his/her own dedicated institutional resources, laboratory space, and/or facilities. We are interested in geographic, gender, and racial diversity, and we encourage women and communities of color to apply. Funds may be used toward a variety of research activities, but not the recipient’s salary. The candidate’s other sources of funding will be considered when selecting awards. አንድ እጩ ከማክሮን ኢንዶውመንት ፈንድ ለኒውሮሳይንስ ከሌላው የአእምሮ ህመም ሽልማት ኒውሮቢዮሎጂ ሽልማት ጋር በተመሳሳይ ጊዜ የሚይዝ ሽልማት ሊይዝ አይችልም ፡፡
There is a two-stage selection process, beginning with a letter of intent (LOI). The selection committee will review the LOIs and invite a number of applicants to submit full proposals. Up to four awards are made annually, each providing $100,000 per year for three years. LOIs are due on March 15, 2021 (midnight in the last time zone on earth). Full proposals will be due September 20, 2021. Funding begins on February 1, 2022.
