The purpose of these awards is to support, in the early stages of their careers, young investigators engaged in basic or clinical research that may lead to a better understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Several areas within the neurosciences are of particular interest to the Fund: 1. Cellular and molecular neuroscience – Studies of the mechanisms of neuronal excitability and development, and of the genetic basis of behavior. 2. Neural systems – Studies of the integrative function of the nervous system. 3. Clinical research – Studies designed to improve the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and our understanding of the causes of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
