Helping to launch research careers
Next Generation Research Grants
The American Brain Foundation’s Next Generation Research Grants fund and support innovative investigations by the best and brightest early-career researchers. Funding research across a broad spectrum of the brain is our best hope for finding better treatments, prevention, and cures for brain diseases and disorders. With the support of our donors, we’re helping to launch long-term careers for the next generation of clinical neuroscience researchers so that one day we can all enjoy life without brain disease.
Impact of Next Generation Research Grants
The American Brain Foundation was founded to bring researchers and donors together in the fight against brain disease. Our Next Generation Research Grants have provided millions of dollars to fund the innovative research of early-career investigators, encouraging passion for research and laying the groundwork for future success.
