Neurobiology Research Center Awards 7 Peer-Reviewed Pilot Grants
Mary Beth Genter, PhD, professor, Department of Environmental Health earns $25,000 award for a pilot grant in "Intranasal Nilotinib in a Mouse Model of Parkinson’s Disease".
The University of Cincinnati (UC) Neurobiology Research Center and the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute recently awarded seven researchers with peer-reviewed pilot grants totaling $175,000. Awardees each receive a $25,000 grant toward their pilot research.
"Our goal with these pilot grants is to advance neuroscience research efforts across the university,” says James Herman, PhD, Donald C. Harrison Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience and director of the UC Neurobiology Research Center (NRC). "Pilot grants not only foster collaboration across different disciplines to further thinking and research in the neurosciences, but also can lead to national funding of the research project.”
