UCLA BIRC Fund Applications

The UCLA Brain Injury Research Center (BIRC) has funded Traumatic Brain Injury research for over 20 years and supports research projects to increase understanding and facilitate treatment and eventual reversal of sequelae resulting from Traumatic Brain Injury. Research proposals that focus on basic science or translational work related to TBI, will be considered.

Support Application Submission 

Applications will be reviewed anonymously by an External Advisory Board, which will assess each application’s  research significance, innovation, and approach to determine an overall research score. These scores will be used to determine funding distribution by the BIRC finance committee. Proposals should be designed for a 2-year period and budgets should reflect achievable aims within that timeframe.

Please submit your Application, NIH Biosketch, and Budget (Excel file) to [email protected]

Applications are due by 5:00pm PST, January 31, 2024. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Funding notifications will be sent in March 2024.
