A major initiative during the past year has been the formation of neurotechnology/neuroscience teams to develop novel technologies that open avenues to address key scientific questions in neuroscience. Monthly meetings that bring together faculty from engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, mathematics and neuroscience culminated in submission of grant applications for pilot grants. Each application was required to have two Co-PIs, one non-neuroscientist and one neuroscientist. Seven applications were funded for our launch grant cycle of June 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017. Stay posted for the first progress reports at our annual retreat, July 31 – August 1, 2016, at Canaan Valley Resort.
