Application Process


The purpose of the Pilot Program is to provide short-term start-up funds to promising postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty (less than 5 years from post-doctoral training/terminal degree) to collect initial data for an R03, R21, or R01 submission. The project must focus on a neuroscience-related topic and explore either sex/gender differences or disorders/treatments as they uniquely relate to women. The project can be either clinical or basic science, and projects involving multidisciplinary teams and/or translational research efforts are especially encouraged.
