Dr. Freedman’s work was first determined of high merit by the Brain Research Foundation’s Scientific Review Committee, a national group of well-respected neuroscientists that evaluates each grant proposal to determine the most promising new research projects in the field of neuroscience. The Committee selects those projects that will likely lead to extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health or other outside funding sources.
BRF’s Associate Board then selected Dr. Freedman’s work because of the potential impact it can have on our understanding of a number of brain diseases including autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorder and schizophrenia. The Associated Board is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children with brain disorders and their families.
Established to help innovative neuroscience researchers gather the data required to validate their hypotheses, the BRF Seed Grants are a critical first step in understanding neurological disorders.
