The Dana Foundation seeks proposals from junior faculty on improving human brain and brain-immune functioning in health and disease. The Foundation will provide up to $200,000 in pilot funding for innovative ideas that have direct clinical application.
Previously funded studies under this program have focused primarily on 1) understanding normal brain functioning, how it is altered by disease or injury, and how it recovers or repairs, 2) assessing and improving diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and 3) refining and advancing imaging technologies to address specific clinical questions. In addition to these three general areas of continued interest, the Foundation encourages studies that seek to understand developmental processes of disease, surrogate measures of early disease existence, and measures of disease progression.
If you are interested in applying, please submit your CV, a 1-5 page research summary, and a letter of support by Friday, January 20, 2012 using the limited submission form. One candidate selected by OHSU will have until February 28, 2012 to submit an application to the Foundation.
