The Dana Foundation's imaging research program focuses on improving human brain and immune system functioning in health and disease. The program consists of two tracks. Track A is for conventional systems imaging (anatomical imaging of white or gray matter in the brain, or physiological functioning, such as blood flow). Track B is for cellular and molecular imaging of biochemical actions of specific brain cells, immune cells, or their interactions. Applicants undertaking cellular and molecular imaging also can employ systems imaging in their proposals to view the actions of cells and their locations. Institutions may submit only one application per track. Both tracks support pilot-testing of promising but high-risk innovative ideas that have direct clinical application and that, when successful, are in a competitive position to garner larger scale support from other funders. A priority is to make support available to faculty researchers early in their careers. Senior investigators may apply only if they are seeking support to embark upon a new research direction.

Because MU is limited to one application for each track of this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, November 3, 2006. Letters of intent should indicate the track for which the project is geared and be limited to a two-page summary of the proposed project and a two-page biosketch of the PI.


Track A - up to $100,000 over a period of up to three years.
Track B - from $100,000 to $300,000 total, for up to three years.

MU Deadline: 4:00 p.m., Friday, November 3, 2006
