The Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research is accepting applications to its Pilot Grant Program. Pilot grants will support early-stage neuroscience investigators working at all scales, from molecular to social to computational neuroscience to acquire preliminary data, receive guidance from experienced mentors, and increase their competitiveness for substantial funding such as NIH R01 or R15 grants.
The Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research with support from the National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS) is offering an on-campus summer research opportunity for undergraduate students who are interested in careers related to neuroscience research. Students will spend 9 weeks over the summer carrying out neuroscience research with researchers at Delaware State University and the University of Delaware. The students, accompanied by their mentors, will also have the opportunity to travel to present their research at a regional or national conference. Students accepted to the program will choose a faculty research mentor and will spend approximately 35 hours/week over 9 weeks working in their mentor’s laboratory. Students will also participate in career, academic and professional development activities. Participants in the program will receive a stipend of $5,000 over the summer and will be eligible for additional travel support over the following academic year. Housing is available at Delaware State University for participants who need it.
