The purpose of the Fund is to provide support for early-stage ideas and creative, pioneering projects in neuroscience that otherwise may go unfunded by conventional grant-making bodies. The ultimate goal is that such proposals will lead to new or continued funding through the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation or other federal/national agencies. The Fund is particularly interested in applications that align with opportunities for large federal funding initiatives e.g., The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative.
