Request for pre-pilot proposals due December 6, 2022

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 two projects for up to $50,000 each indirect cost with a projected start date of June 1st, 2023.

This year, 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.

Information session: Details about our online information and Q&A session about this funding mechanism on Tuesday, Nov 22nd, at 3 p.m. are included at the link below.
