The Neuroscience Research Priority Area (NRPA) supports a "collaborative matrix," bringing together diverse groups of investigators, trainees, and research groups from more than 8 University of Kentucky colleges. The NRPA builds upon and leverages existing strengths and relationships; providing infrastructure and support to promote research collaborations and raise internal and external recognition of the depth of neuroscience-related research at the university with the goals of growing extramural support, increasing academic productivity, enhancing recruitment of faculty and trainees, and providing new knowledge to address the needs of the citizens of the Commonwealth and beyond.
New and Open NRPA RFAs
Recognizing that teams develop focused on defined areas of research with needs that are currently not supported through other mechanisms, the NRPA will consider support for selected NRPA Centers to address this gap. The Full RFA and application instructions are at the link below. The deadline is January 10, 2022.
For this year's competition, the NRPA is providing a total of $250,000 in support w/ a maximum award of $100,000. The Substance Use Research Priority Area is partnering in the program and will provide up to $50,000 in matching funds for appropriate proposals. Applications should be submitted byJanuary 10, 2022. via the VPR's Internal Funding Portal. Full details at the link below.
