The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded a Young Investigator Grant to Lucas Cheadle, Ph.D., of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
BBRF Young Investigator grants support the work of early career investigators with innovative ideas for groundbreaking neurobiological research to identify causes, improve treatments, and develop methods of prevention for psychiatric illnesses.
The recipients of the 2021 Young Investigator Grants were selected by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s Scientific Council, which reviewed 788 applications and selected 150 Young Investigators from the US and abroad.
“BBRF Young Investigators represent the next generation of scientists who we expect will make great strides in basic research, new technologies, next generation therapies, and early intervention techniques,” said Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President and CEO, of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. “This is the kind of out-of-the box research that will offer the best hope for improved treatments, cures, and methods of prevention for our loved ones, and we’re thrilled to provide seed funding for this important work.”
Herbert Pardes, M.D., President of the Foundation’s Scientific Council noted, “For more than 30 years BBRF has focused on funding visionary young investigators who see opportunities in forging new paths. By supporting ground-breaking work, BBRF helps set the trajectory of brain research and builds momentum toward discoveries that we expect will yield advances in neuroscience.”
