HBI and DCNS members are eligible to apply for these $20,000 awards; preference will be given to more junior investigators. The proposed research must have a clear translational or clinical component, with clear benefit to an HBI NeuroTeam; applicants should also demonstrate the potential for their research to generate additional, sustainable funding from other sources.
