MetLife Foundation Awards for Medical Research

The Foundation established the MetLife Foundation Awards for Medical Research in 1986 in light of the devastating effects of Alzheimer's disease on older adults and their families.  The Awards recognize scientific research achievements and the potential for future findings in Alzheimer's disease.  Since the program began, the Foundation has awarded $13.6 million for research on the disease.

Limited submission: More than one candidate can be nominated. MUST be nominated by Awards Committee
Award Amount: Personal Award $50,000 + $200,000 Institutional Grant

Dana Foundation- David Mahoney Neuroimaging Program

Dana supports research on imaging innovations that help reveal how the human brain functions normally, how disorders and injuries alter these functions, and how various therapies affect these conditions. Since immune cells are often integrally involved in the development of, protection against, or responses to brain diseases and injuries, funded research also can focus on immune cell interactions with brain cells.

Scientists, using either conventional brain imaging techniques, cellular and molecular imaging technologies, or a combination of both, are supported to undertake pilot tests of novel hypotheses. These data then can be used to compete for larger-scale funding from other sources. Studies tend to focus on how imaging can enhance understanding of normal brain functioning; improve diagnosis; expand understanding of disease or injury processes; and assess treatment effects. Additionally, studies designed to refine existing imaging techniques, or to further develop new techniques to address specific clinical questions, are supported.
Limited submission: One
Award Amount: $200,000 over three years.

McKnight Scholar Awards
The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience supports innovative research designed to bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated. To this end, the McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience invites applications for the 2014 McKnight Scholar Awards.

These awards were established to encourage emerging neuroscientists to focus on disorders of learning and memory. Applicants for the McKnight Scholar Awards must demonstrate interest in solving important problems in relevant areas of neuroscience, including the translation of basic research to clinical neuroscience. Awards are given to exceptional young scientists who hold the M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree and who are in the early stages of establishing an independent laboratory and research career. Traditionally, successful candidates have held faculty positions for at least one year
