Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute will provide funding to support collaborative translational research projects that involve co-principal investigators from diverse areas. Each proposal must have at least two co-principal investigators from two different fields both of whom must be members of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute (become a faculty affiliate).
At least two fields should be represented. At least one faculty must be a clinician. Clinician is broadly defined to include faculty who work with human users, they don’t have to be humans with disease. The other faculty members may be from engineering, sciences or any other discipline.
All co-principal investigators must be Stanford faculty with UTL, MCL, CE, or NTL appointments.
Other team members (grad students, postdocs, research staff, etc.) may be included.
The research must relate directly to applications in neuroscience or brain health, broadly defined. The objectives of the project should include an outcome that will benefit patients or other users of the technology. Evaluation of proposals by the Oversight Committee will be on the basis of innovation and scientific merit, potential impact, technical feasibility and the potential for translation, including commercialization.
