Research with impact.
The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute's interdisciplinary research grants will fundamentally advance our understanding of the mind, brain and behavior in health and disease. Through everything we do, we are bringing together brilliant people from diverse disciplines to tackle the unanswered questions in neuroscience.
Big Ideas in Neuroscience
We ask our faculty to come together and dream big. Big Ideas in Neuroscience grants catalyze cross-disciplinary teams of researchers to collaboratively tackle fundamental questions that advance our understanding of the mind, brain and behavior in health and disease.
The Neuroscience:Translate grant program supports translational neuroscience research projects at the intersection of biology, engineering and medicine in partnership with the Stanford Byers Institute for Biodesign.
Our seed grant program funds innovative, interdisciplinary research projects in the neurosciences. We seek focused, intense collaborations between 2-3 faculty members piloting a novel idea.
The Knight Initiative for Brain Resilience seeks creative and bold proposals to generate paradigm-shifting insights into the biology of brain aging, the drivers of neurodegenerative disease and opportunities to promote brain health and resilience long into what we now consider "old age".
Neuroimaging Pilot Grants
To encourage investigators of all levels to explore the possibilities of MR imaging for their research, the Neurosciences Preclinical Imaging Laboratory invites the Stanford research community to submit applications for our NPIL Neuroimaging Pilot Grant program.
Koret Pilot Grants
The Koret Human Neurosciences Community Lab at the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute invites the Stanford research community to submit applications for our Koret Pilot Grant program.
