Multi-Investigator Research Initiative
(MIRI)

The purpose of the Multi-Investigator Research Initiative (MIRI) grants is to support multidisciplinary teams and to accelerate novel and transformative research that will fundamentally change our understanding of nervous system function and dysfunction and their impact on health. The ultimate goal is to reduce the social and economic burden of neurological and mental health problems by prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.

Proposals can address any aspect of nervous system function or dysfunction that has relevance to neurological and/or psychiatric diseases and conditions, including those of the special senses and the peripheral nervous system. The focus of proposals must be on investigating commonalities among multiple or related neurological and/or psychiatric conditions. The proposal must show how the research will generate findings applicable to multiple nervous system diseases or conditions.
