Eleven faculty to receive HBI Bipolar Disorder Seed Grants

Congratulations to Mark Andermann, Todd Anthony, Joan Camprodon, Kerry Ressler, Michael Do, Susan Dymecki, Bernardo Sabatini, Beth Stevens, Naoshige Uchida, Charles Weitz, and Tracy Young-Pearse on being awarded HBI Bipolar Disorder Seed Grants! The Harvard Brain Science Initiative (HBI) Bipolar Disorder Seed Grant Program supports research relevant to the basic understanding and eventual treatment of bipolar disorder. Supported by a generous gift from Kent and Liz Dauten and the Dauten Family Foundation, this program funds innovative, visionary projects with new ideas and approaches that otherwise may not attract seed funding from conventional sources. To date the program has awarded 30 grants totaling $3M, to laboratories with diverse areas of expertise, spread out across different campuses of Harvard University and its affiliated hospitals.

Collaborative Seed Grants
HBI is pleased to announce our third call for proposals for the HBI Collaborative Seed Grants Program, intended to foster projects linking faculty at the Harvard Medical School Quad and the Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Spearheaded by a generous donation from the Alice and Rodman W. Moorhead III Collaborative Grants Fund, this program supports a broad range of fundamental neuroscience research, focusing on projects whose long-term aim is to provide basic insights into mechanisms underlying brain disorders. Basic science proposals are encouraged but should articulate a relevant disease connection.
