CoNDA Projects

The CoNDA Center supports neuroscience research in the Omaha region by funding Research Projects, Pilot Projects, and Mini-Grants in the form of Research Core Usage Vouchers.

The goal of the Research Projects Program is to provide support to junior investigators to develop independent research program and acquire the preliminary data necessary to apply for and obtain external federal funding. The benchmark of success for the CoNDA RPL is the award of R0-1 within 2-3 years.

The goal of the Pilot Project Program is to provide support to promising research led by faculty at CoNDA participating institutions (UNMC, UNO, Creighton & Boys Town). This mechanism aims to support innovative, collaborative projects in the field of neuroscience in general with emphasis on the cognitive neuroscience in development and aging in health and disease.
