The goals of this program are (1) to encourage promising postdoctoral fellows and young
investigators to undertake research on spinal cord regeneration, recovery and rehabilitation; (2) to encourage
scientists who are well-established in other areas to transfer their efforts to spinal cord research; and (3) enable
researchers with novel scientific and clinical ideas to test them and develop pilot data needed to seek larger awards
from the National Institutes of Health, and other funding sources.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for a one-year or two-year award. Maximum funding is up to $200,000 per year
including direct and indirect costs.
young investigators, and postdoctoral fellows may serve as principal investigator. If the applicant is a fellow, s/he
must submit a letter of support from the laboratory’s senior scientist, as well as two other appropriate letters of reference. Unaffiliated individuals will not be funded. Individuals of any nationality or citizenship status may apply, provided they are employed by or affiliated with a qualified New Jersey State organization/institution.
