Funding for the Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research recently renewed by NIH!

             The Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research was established in 2012 with a $10.3 million, five year  “Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)” award to Delaware State University (DSU) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).  In 2017 DSU was awarded a second five year $10.9 million grant from NIGMS to fund phase II of the Center. In September 2022, NIGMS awarded DSU a $5.7 million grant to fund the Center for phase III.

         The Delaware Neuroscience Center is a collaboration between DSU and the University of Delaware (UD) that uniquely brings together faculty and research resources from two very different institutions: a minority-serving, undergraduate university with an emerging strength in neuroscience research (DSU), and the state’s flagship research university (UD). The overarching goal of our Center is to create a community of neuroscientists working at multiple scales, from human subjects to rodent and invertebrate models, and support their research to improve our understanding of the dynamic function of the brain.
