The purpose of the The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative Fellows (F32) program is to enhance the research training of promising postdoctorates, early in their postdoctoral training period, who have the potential to become productive investigators in research areas that will advance the goals of The BRAIN Initiative®. Applications are encouraged in any research area that is aligned with The BRAIN Initiative®, including neuroethics.
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), one of 10 Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health that make up the NIH BRAIN Initiative, is organizing a workshop to share information about the NIH BRAIN initiative program, provide an overview of various funding opportunities, and provide guidance to potential NIDCD applicants. The workshop will feature presentations from the NIH BRAIN initiative Director and NIDCD staff as well as several BRAIN initiative awardees in the chemical senses space.
