Giving

The Michigan Neuroscience Institute supports a growing range of basic and translational research projects that seek to understand how the nervous system works and how it is affected by various conditions, including autism, addiction and Alzheimer’s disease … among many others. We invite you to join us as we explore the mysteries of the brain and seek to discover novel treatments for neurological and psychiatric diseases. Here are three funding opportunities now:

Postdoctoral Fellow Research Fund

Young scientists often have the best ideas. But just as often, they lack the funds to see their ideas through. The postdoctoral fellow research fund provides critical support to training neuroscientists. Your financial support will help the next generation of scientists finds answers to the complex problems posed by the brain and lead us toward better treatments for brain diseases.

Kick Start Collaborations

A major goal of the MNI is to foster connections between scientists in order to advance our understanding of the brain and its myriad diseases. We consider the MNI to be a “Collaboratory” that encourages scientists with diverse expertise to join forces and innovate together, beyond their comfort zones. Whether you are interested in brain function or a particular disease, your financial support will enable teams of scientists to explore novel ideas leading to high-impact discoveries.

MNI General Fund

Whether it is mentoring trainees, sponsoring learning sessions, purchasing a new research tool to be shared by neuroscientists, or connecting researchers to resources, the MNI serves many missions. The general fund allows the MNI to direct your financial support to the areas where it is most needed.
