Request for pre-pilot proposals due November 10, 2023.

The University of Nevada, Reno Center for Integrative Neuroscience (an NIH COBRE Award) invites applications for one-year pilot project grants to support the development of new research projects in neuroscience. We anticipate supporting 2 projects for up to $40,000 each in direct costs with a projected start date of June 1st, 2024.

Applicants are required to submit a brief (2-page max) Pre-Proposal that describes the proposed research. Pre-proposals will be reviewed by the Program Directors and a small number of applications will be selected to submit full Pilot Project Proposals. While advancement to full proposal is not a guarantee of funding, chances of award will be increased due to the smaller pool of applicants. Priority will be given to applications that leverage one or more of the COBRE Core Facilities, although this is not a requirement.
