    About NARSAD Independent Investigator Grants

    Ground-breaking scientists already proven in their field receive the NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant. These scientists seek to produce experimental results that will put them in a position to initiate major research programs.

    This support of up to $100,000 for two years comes at the critical middle period in the investigators’ careers— the phase between the initiation of research and the receipt of sustained funding. With proven success as highly productive scientists, they seek to make clinically relevant advances in the study and treatment of a range of brain and behavior disorders. The first NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant was awarded in 1995. Since then, we have awarded more than $77 million in Independent Investigator Grants.
