Research Funding

CONDA Mini Grant RFA

Deadline: May 15, 2020

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Development and Aging (CONDA) Center is pleased to announce two opportunities
for research funding through an NIH/NIGMS mechanism. The CONDA Center is a new Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE) that focuses on the cognitive Neuroscience of lifespan development and strives to support and develop all neuroimaging and human neuroscience research in the region.

The goal of the Mini Grants Program is to provide support to promising research projects led by graduate students and post-doctoral research associates. These projects can be largely independent from the mentor’s ongoing projects, or can substantially build on the same theme. Acceptable examples would include adding a study group (e.g., un-medicated patients) to an ongoing study of several patient groups, adding a new measure (e.g., MRI or blood test) to an ongoing study, adding an additional follow-up visit, or similar scenarios. The main goals of the program are to enhance graduate student and postdoctoral research projects across the Omaha academic community. Total budgets should range from $5,000 to a maximum of $20,000 and we anticipate funding several mini grants in 2020. Note that the project period should be less than one year and that the average budget is expected to be about $10,000. Successful applicants will also receive access to resources of the Center for professional development and project support.

For questions pertaining to whether your research would qualify for Center support, please contact Melissa Welch-Lazoritz, email.
