BMI Provides Research Start-up Funds for Four New Research Projects
The Brain and Mind Institute (BMI) is pleased to announce its first round of research funding for four research projects (details) . These multidisciplinary projects, being the first to receive research funds from BMI, pool researchers and experts from a wide range of fields, including Linguistics, Otolaryngology, Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Psychology, Psychiatry, and Biomedical Sciences. With these new endeavors, BMI now has research projects in all four of its strategic research areas, namely:
- Optimizing language learning in early childhood
- Defining the broad autism phenotype in Chinese societies
- Enhancing treatments for dyslexia
- Identifying molecular mechanisms of neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration
BMI is interested in funding high-quality, high-impact projects which are fundamentally interdisciplinary, especially preliminary research that cannot be conducted without the Institute’s support. Interested researchers can direct their enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
