Application Deadline: NCBiotech Flash Grant Program

September 13 @ 12:00 pm

The Flash Grant program aims to identify and energize creative ideas that exhibit early indications of commercial potential.

These $20,000 micro-grants are designed to demonstrate the disruptive potential of a life sciences technology and prepare a technology for translational development. An additional intern supplement of up to $7,500 is available to engage an undergraduate student on a Flash project (the supplement is only available to non-R1 institutions).

This solicitation is open to proposals related to neurosciences research or neuro-associated product development, excluding Class I medical devices, consumer products and mobile apps. Eligible neurosciences research areas include:

  • Behavioral neuroscience/biological psychology
  • Cognitive neuroscience
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Developmental neuroscience
  • Integrative neuroscience
  • Molecular neuroscience
  • Neuropsychopharmacology
  • Systems neuroscience
  • Neurologic diseases and conditions (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, etc.)  – diagnostics, therapeutics, and medical devices
  • Biologically-mediated (e.g., autoimmune, viral, microbiota, etc.) neurologic diseases and conditions, including mental health conditions (e.g., addiction, depression, schizophrenia, etc.) – diagnostic, therapeutic or medical device development

Funds are available to researchers at any North Carolina university or non-profit research institute.
