Six UCSD Scientists Receive NARSAD’s Prestigious 2008 Young Investigator Award
Six scientists from the University of California, San Diego have been selected by NARSAD, the world's leading charity dedicated to mental health research, to each receive a 2008 Young Investigator Award.
The UC San Diego scientists are six of 220 early-career scientists in the United States and 11 other countries who will receive funds this year from NARSAD (formerly known as the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression) to advance their research on psychiatric disorders.
Each of the scientists will receive $60,000 from NARSAD over the next two years to study a variety of topics:
NARSAD created the Young Investigator Award to help the most promising scientists who are now entering research – post-doctoral fellows, advanced-standing medical residents, and assistant professors – to generate pilot data necessary for larger grants. The awardees were selected by NARSAD’s Scientific Council, comprised of 103 prominent leaders in mental health research, which reviews the project proposals to select innovative, promising studies for funding support.
