Translational Neuroscience Hub: Call for Seed Grant Applications
APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED
The MIDB Translational Hub seeks to support up to four seed grants ($25,000 for one year of work). Given recent advancements in the field of liquid biopsy and developmental biomarkers, we seek to support exploratory/developmental proposals that investigate bodily fluids-derived biomarkers (e.g., free-floating DNA, exosomes, neural-specific extracellular vesicles, metabolites, miRNAs, etc.) that can ultimately have diagnostic or prognostic implications for neurobehavioral development and lead to subsequent externally funded projects (e.g., NIH R21, R01). Applicants may submit proposals that use the listed methodologies in combination with other tools (e.g., electrophysiology, neuroimaging). Proposals can involve preclinical models, human research, or both. Priority will be given to applications that align with the mission of the MIDB.
