One Mind Rising Star Awards

Description

The One Mind Rising Star Awards identify and fund pivotal, innovative research on the causes of and cures for brain health conditions by supporting the most promising emerging leaders in the field of neuropsychiatry.

The goal of the One Mind Rising Star Research Awards is to build capacity and accelerate research on neuropsychiatric disorders by recognizing and funding promising, early career investigators through a competitive grants process.

The scope of the 2022 Rising Star Awards is to be determined. Applicants will be considered for all that fit their proposal.​

Eligibility

To qualify as an early career investigator, candidates should be within 10 years of their initial independent appointment as an assistant professor for academic institutions or equivalent positions for industry or other non-academic positions. Note that postdoctoral fellows are ineligible.

Candidates should have demonstrated productivity and innovation in a scientific field that can be applied to the study of neuropsychiatric disorders, such as anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, depression, posttraumatic stress, schizophrenia, traumatic brain injury, suicidality, and other serious psychiatric illnesses.

The proposal should not overlap with existing funding.

Applicants may apply for the One Mind/Inscopix Technology Grant only as a supplement to a Rising Star Award proposal. Applicants cannot solely apply to the Technology Grant.

Prize

Each One Mind Rising Star Award winner receives $300,000 over a three-year period to fund research for their studies, catalyzing innovation and encouraging collaboration and data sharing.
