Fifth Annual Holland-Trice Scholars Award for high risk/high impact discovery in research in Basic Brain Science and Brain Diseases

This award provides funding for discovery in the basic neurosciences. Priority is given to School of Medicine investigators researching the basic biology that could be related to brain diseases, including (but not limited to) Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disorders, stroke, and behavioral disorders.

Three $50,000 (1 year) and one $200,000 (2 years) awards will be presented to support truly innovative basic science pilot research projects in brain and disease based on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Scientific rational
  • Potential for scientific impact
  • Clear articulation of the way in which the proposed research differs from other funded projects of the Principal Investigator
  • Clarity of plans for obtaining subsequent extramural funding to extend or complete the project
