NARSAD Independent Investigator Grants
Since 1995, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded:
The NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant provides support for investigators during the critical period between the initiation of research and the receipt of sustained funding. A two-year grant up to $100,000 or $50,000 per year is provided to scientists at the associate professor level or equivalent, who are clearly independent and have won national competitive support as a principal investigator. Basic and/or clinical investigators are supported, but research must be relevant to schizophrenia, major affective disorders, or other serious mental illnesses. The program is intended to facilitate innovative research opportunities.
