Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seed Grants fund innovative, interdisciplinary research projects proposed by Stanford faculty in the neurosciences broadly defined. We consider interdisciplinary seed grant research projects to involve at least two independent co-PI's who use different methodologies/approaches and/or work in different disciplines. The collaborators should combine their expertise in an innovative fashion to address important problems in basic and clinical neuroscience. Wu Tsai Neuro encourages three strategic interfaces between neuroscience and other bastions of disciplinary strength at Stanford: 1) engineering and the quantitative sciences, 2) chemical and molecular biology, and 3) the social sciences, humanities and professional schools of education, law and business.
This year, the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seed Grant program will award grants for up to $200,000 each ($100,000/year for 2 years).
