Neuroscience Institute Grant awards

22 Aug 2018 - 17:00

The Neuroscience Institute (NI) put out a Request for Applications in 2018 in order to encourage start-up collaborative grants, particularly for Fellows and junior staff, that could ultimately be converted into larger grants to sustain independent investigators.

We are pleased to announce that 3 grants have been awarded:

 First, Jonathan Ipser (pictured) in the Dept of Psychiatry, has been awarded a start-up grant on “The impact of pre-   natal exposure to nicotine on intrinsic functional brain networks in young children”. This work fits well with the   neurodevelopmental theme of the NI.

 

 

 Second, Catherine Wedderburn (pictured) in the Dept of Paediatrics, has been awarded a start-up grant on “A   longitudinal neuroimaging study of HIV-exposed uninfected children”. This work fits well with the HIV theme of the   NI.

 

 

 Third, Pieter Naude (pictured) of the Dept of Psychiatry, has been awarded a start-up grant on “Inflammation and   the microbiome in the intergenerational transmission of maternal stress on neurodevelopment”. This work fits well   with the neurodevelopmental theme of the NI.
