Seven innovative projects awarded in second Neuromod+ funding call

We are delighted to have been able to award seven new projects in the latest Neuromod+ funding call. Projects cover varied topics, from acceptance of neurotechnology among ethnic minority communities, to investigating how focussed ultrasound works in neuromodulation and looking at new approaches for enhancing memory performance. The wide range of disorders addressed in the funded projects (including motor neurone disease, memory disorders, mental health conditions and other neurological and neurodegenerative conditions), highlight the potential of minimally invasive neuromodulation to be applied to a huge variety of conditions and disorders.

A list of the projects awarded is below. Find out more on the funding page of our website.

  • Mahnaz Arvaneh: Fostering Acceptance and Inclusivity of Non-Invasive Neurotechnology in African Ethnic Minority Communities
  • Rob Dineen: Clinical Trial Readiness for Non-Invasive Therapeutic Neuromodulation in Ataxia Telangiectasia
  • Tracy Farr: Understanding the mechanisms by which low intensity focussed ultrasound is able to modulate neural activity
  • Marcus Kaiser: Closed-loop focused ultrasound neuromodulation: Testing different strategies in healthy human participants
  • Alekhya Mandali: Optimising transcranial electrical stimulation for motor neurone disease
  • Jacinta O’Shea: Remediating depressive cognition using a novel brain stimulation device
  • Simon Schultz: Sharp-wave ripple triggered neuromodulation for memory enhancement
Congratulations to our awardees and thank you to all the teams who submitted a proposal.
Our third call for funding for feasibility studies will open in late in 2024.
