BIAA Announces Research Funding Opportunities for 2021 Awards
May 1, 2020
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) offers funding opportunities to support research toward finding cures for brain injury. Now in its second year, BIAA’s Brain Injury Research Fund was created in 2019 through a generous bequest from the estate of Linda Redmann. The fund provides support to studies that will contribute to our understanding of brain injury as a chronic disease.
Through the Brain Injury Research Fund, BIAA offers two types of funding: Dissertation Grants, funded at $5,000, and Seed Grants, funded up to $25,000. Click here to view a list of funded projects. Association leaders will begin accepting Letters of Interest (LOIs) for the 2021 awards May 15, 2020.
BIAA is especially interested in finding novel approaches to understanding and ameliorating long-term effects of brain injury, such as the excess mortality associated with more severe injuries, neurodegenerative diseases that may be triggered by an injury earlier in life, or consequences of childhood brain injury.
