CNR Core Awards

CNR Core Award

The CNR Core Award is designed to encourage neuroscience investigators to utilize core services of the center. The program offers small awards to individual neuroscientists or groups of neuroscientists wishing to collect preliminary data for a new grant application. Applications use a format similar to the one employed for the annual pilot awards; however, awards for the core program are limited to $5000 and the funds must be spent within CNR core facilities or in the Tufts Molecular Facility within a six-month period of time. Applications must indicate how the award will facilitate the collection of preliminary data for a new grant application. Interested neuroscientists may submit an application at any time, which will be reviewed by the CNR operations committee in an expedited manner
