Initiatives

Our mission is to support research in Neuroscience for Junior Faculty and Postdoctoral researchers alike. Below are a list of our projects, and financial initiatives that we offer.

University of Michigan Neuroscience Meeting

We facilitate a yearly meeting to bring together the large, diverse Neuroscience community at the University of Michigan. This meeting includes meals, talks and group discussions promoting collaboration and scholarship in the Michigan Neuroscience community.

2022 meeting: May 5th and 6th

Magnificent Michigan Summer Fellowship 2022

We provide summer funding for undergraduates to pursue research work in neuroscience under the guidance of UM Neuroscience Innovators, and receive a living wage while doing it. We also provided equity guidelines for the PI to help assist in the student's growth as career researchers.

Neuroscience Innovator Lecture Series

We host several talks a year bringing in major neuroscience researchers who are doing highly impactful work to come and spend time with the Michigan Neuroscience community.

Postdoctoral Support

To support Postdoctoral Fellows at the University of Michigan, we are providing funding to be used for postdoctoral community events. We would like to foster a sense of community and encourage collaborative work among postdocs across departments and units.
