BIRC provides seed grants to facilitate the future development of external grant applications. Seed grants are provided in the form of a limited number of allocated hours on MRI, EEG and/or TMS equipment at BIRC. These hours are intended to enable investigators to demonstrate feasibility, develop scientific and technical expertise, establish collaborations, and, secondarily, publish in peer-reviewed journals. Seed grants are intended for investigators with experience in the proposed methods, as well as those with little or no experience who have developed a collaborative plan to acquire such experience. New investigators are encouraged to consult with BIRC leadership early in the development of their project.
The Spring 2019 call for BIRC seed grants is now open. Please submit applications by April 8, 2019.
Please note that the application has changed from previous cycles and that seed grants may now be submitted by graduate students/postdocs as PI, although the trainee’s supervisor must be a co-PI.
