The McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience was established in 2007.
The fundamental mission for the Center is to enhance research and research training opportunities in systems and cognitive neuroscience across all the relevant Schools of Washington University.
The main resources available through the Center are:
The Center has an ongoing small grants program to support promising new research initiatives within the Washington University neuroscience community. The single yearly deadline is in March.
Cognitive, Computational and Systems Neuroscience (CCSN) Pathway, a specialized curriculum available to students pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology or Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. Center Administration coordinates activities and events for this program.
Requests for New Resource Proposals are meant to be very flexible and have no fixed deadline. The requests can be any size within the available resources of the Center, and should not be bound by any fixed amount.
