Nine interdisciplinary research teams at Duke have been selected to receive the 2012-2013 Duke Institute for Brain Sciences' (DIBS) Research Incubator Awards (four new awards and five continuation awards).
The Research Incubator Awards program is designed to encourage innovative approaches to problems of brain function that transcend the boundaries of traditional disciplines. The award provides seed funding for collaborative research projects that will lead to a better understanding of brain function and translate into innovative solutions for health and society.
