Cold Spring Harbor Neuroscientists Awarded NIH Transformative R01 Grants

We’ve been working with the scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for years, so we were delighted to hear that two of the research facility’s neuroscientists were recently awarded a new type of grant from the National Institute of Health called the “Transformative R01” grant.

Professor Partha Mitra, Ph.D., received this grant for the project “The Missing Circuit: The First Brainwide Connectivity Map for Mouse,” and assistant Professor Josh Dubnau, Ph.D., received his award for the project “Genome-wide Regulatory Network Governing Neuronal mRNA Translation.”

According to the NIH Roadmap website the new grant was created “to support exceptionally innovative, high risk, original and/or unconventional research projects that have the potential to create or overturn fundamental paradigms.” We congratulate Dr. Mitra and Dr. Dubnau on their awards, and wish them success on their projects.
