Our Neuroscience Community


Request for Proposals:
This program supports research relevant to the basic understanding and eventual treatment of bipolar disorder.

Supported by a generous gift from Kent and Liz Dauten, this program seeks innovative, visionary projects with new ideas and approaches that otherwise may not attract seed funding from conventional sources. 

Basic research at any level can be supported through this program, but the applicant should articulate a clear connection to bipolar disorder.
