TWO BRAIN RESEARCH PROJECTS WON GRANTS FROM THE RADY INNOVATION FUND.

Researchers team up across disciplines for Rady Innovation Fund projects

Two U of M research projects focused on the brain and one that will investigate community-based rehabilitation services have received inaugural grants from the Rady Innovation Fund.

The new fund is part of the $30 million gift made in 2016 by philanthropists Ernest and Evelyn Rady in support of health sciences at the university.  

The fund will allocate a total of $1 million over three years to support collaborative research by faculty members. The one-year grants are designed to seed innovative, short-term research projects that are interdisciplinary, bringing together researchers from various departments and colleges of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.

“The three leading-edge projects chosen for funding in this first year combine the knowledge and skills of some of our foremost researchers,” said Dr. Peter Nickerson, vice-dean research of the Rady Faculty.
