Call for Proposals: Holland-Trice Scholars Award for high risk/high impact discovery research in Basic Brain Science and Brain Diseases

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

Deadline: Proposals must be received by 5 PM EST, January 10, 2022

The Duke University School of Medicine is pleased to announce a call for proposals for high risk/high impact research in the area of brain and disease. This RFP is focused on discovery in basic neuroscience. Priority will be given to School of Medicine investigators researching basic neurobiology. Ideally, the research could be related to brain diseases, including (but not limited to) Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, stroke, and behavioral disorders.

We plan to make two $50,000 (1 year) and one $100,000 (2 years) awards focused on truly innovative basic science pilot research projects in neuroscience, based on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Scientific rational
  • Potential for scientific impact
  • Clear articulation of the way in which the proposed research differs from other funded projects of the Principal Investigator
  • Clarity of plans for obtaining subsequent extramural funding to extend or complete the project
