LOI: 12/2/13 The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience

The 2014 McKnight Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Awards

These awards encourage and support scientists working on the development of novel and creative approaches to understanding brain function. The Endowment Fund is especially interested in how a new technology may be used or adapted to monitor, manipulate, analyze, or model brain function at any level, from the molecular to the entire organism. The program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences, and research based primarily on existing techniques will not be considered.
