Nebraska EPSCoR is interested in enhancing neuroscience research in Nebraska through trans-disciplinary research that involves multiple Nebraska institutions.
Neuroscience encompasses understanding complex neurobiological systems, from
genetic determinants to cellular processes to the complex interplay of neurons,
circuits, and systems orchestrating behavior and cognition. For the purpose of this
request for proposals, we partition neuroscience research into three broad science
areas: a) biological, physiological, and chemical; b) cognitive and behavioral; and
c) engineering, computational and mathematical neuroscience. Nebraska EPSCoR
is interested in funding projects that involve at least two of the three science areas.
Based on the quality of proposals received, at most two proposals may be funded.
Amount of EPSCoR award: $75,000 to $150,000 per funded proposal
Grant duration: 12 to 18 months
Earliest start date: May 1, 2013
