Neurology and Neuroscience Research Funding Opportunities

Neurological Foundation, the national non-government sponsor of neurological research in New Zealand, has approved nearly $1,340,602 in grants for projects that will benefit neurology and neuroscience researchers. The grants will enable Dr Juliette Cheyne to conduct research into the development of the auditory cortex, and Dr Jenny Taylor to investigate autoantibodies in autoimmune encephalitis.

Funding for the Neurological Foundation enables world-class brain research. This research will advance our understanding of brain and nervous system functions, and help to find better treatments and cures for neurodegenerative diseases.

The brain charity has fund innovative and leading-edge scientific research, and to provide outstanding training to the next generation of brain scientists. During a recent review of neurology and neuroscience funding opportunities, the Neurological Foundation’s Council approved grants totaling over $1,340,602. Among the grantees are Dr Julia Horsfield, a Department of Pathology researcher who will investigate the neurobiology of Parkinson’s disease; Professor Cliff Abraham, a leading Alzheimer’s disease researcher; and Dr Jenny Taylor, a young neurologist who will study autoantibodies in autoimmune encephalitis.

Neurological Foundation grants also include the V J Chapman Research Fellowship, a fellowship designed to give advanced training in neurology to medical graduates who are committed to a career in neurology. To qualify for this fellowship, applicants must have at least a 50% research component. They may also combine their research with additional clinical training in neurology.

NIH funding opportunities focus on high-risk/high-reward discovery work, and emphasize translational and clinical research. They are designed to stimulate new ideas that will flow into the drug pipeline. While some research is funded by commercial organisations, most is supported by the life sciences industry.

NSF intends to support efforts to build a national research infrastructure for neuroscience and develop STEM education and learning for persons with disabilities in formal and informal settings. It is also interested in computational models of perception and communication, as well as in the development of an integrated, shared computational infrastructure to allow systematic grand-scale investigations of the brain.

A Dana Foundation pilot collaboration is currently underway with Boston University’s College of Communication. The partnership will explore issues raised by neuroscience, including translating materials about the brain for the general public. In addition to providing funding for the program, the Dana Foundation will facilitate multi-directional stakeholder engagement through its Career Network in Neuroscience & Society.

Neurological Foundation has also announced an Annual Appeal week to encourage contributions to their funding programs. On July 1, 2016, the Neurological Foundation Council approved grants totaling over $1,340,602. In addition, the Foundation is currently seeking a Center for Neuroscience & Society and strategic partners to expand the reach and impact of its programming.
