Ben Barres Early Career Acceleration Award – 2nd cycle
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for the second cycle of the Ben Barres Early Career Acceleration Awards. This is an investigator award for early career academic investigators, especially those who are new to the field of neurodegeneration. Awards are $1.2M in total costs over 4 years. Early career investigators will benefit from mentored support and resources of the CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network.
The CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network (NCDN) was launched in 2018 with the vision that progress in solving neurodegenerative diseases will come from bringing new people into the neurodegeneration field from diverse disciplines and expertise; supporting interdisciplinary collaborations; empowering the broader scientific community with robust tools and platforms, and creating a culture of open science.
