Over the next several years, the FAS Research Development group will track and disseminate all funding opportunities related to the BRAIN Initiative. These funding opportunities will be sent to a targeted list of faculty. The list will include faculty affiliates of the Center for Brain Science (CBS) and the Mind Brain Behavior (MBB) Interfaculty Initiative. This project is being carried out in collaboration with the Center for Brain Science. All opportunities will be archived and recipients may unsubscribe at any time.

BRAIN Initiative Update

Earlier today, the NIH Advisory Committee to the Director (ACD) presented its recommendations for the long-term strategic goals of the BRAIN Initiative to Dr. Francis Collins. These recommendations, prepared by the ACD BRAIN Working Group and accepted by Dr. Collins, include a bold call for $4.5 billion in federal funding for brain research over the next 12 years. The ACD BRAIN Working Group's report is available in its entirety here.
