Harvard/MIT Research Grants Program in Basic Neuroscience

This research grants program supports collaborative research in basic neuroscience.

Proposals for innovative, high risk, basic neuroscience research are invited from principal investigators from across the Harvard and MIT communities.

The program is intended to forge collaborations between PIs who have not previously worked together. Collaborations involving at least two PIs from different departments and ideally from different institutions are particularly encouraged.
