Constructive Collisions: Neuroscience x Environmental Health

Monday, October 11, 2022 | 11:45 AM - 2:00 PM

Rollins School of Public Health, 8th Flr

Lawrence P. & Ann Estes Klamon Room

1518 Clifton Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30322

Join us for an in-person, on-campus event that will include two exciting collaboration opportunities to connect researchers working in Neuroscience x Environmental Health. 


The Office of SVPR, in partnership with HERCULES Exposome Research Center, Goizueta Institute @ Emory Brain Health, and the Department of Human Genetics, invites Emory researchers who work in environmental health, brain health and the neurosciences, and other related disciplines to attend. Faculty who do not currently work in this space but who are interested are also welcome.


NIH has formally expressed interest in promoting interdisciplinary research and addressing current gaps and opportunities in the intersection of these research areas.


This session will host Lightning Talk presenters who will share brief 10-minute presentations on their ongoing work and future research interests. Following Lighting Talks, we will host a Pitch Session where event attendees will network, collaborate, and brainstorm project ideas that can lead to extramural funding in this area. The event will culminate with each team pitching a real seed project, with up to three teams receiving small, on-the-spot funding to support new collaborations.

**Parking and Box Lunch Included**

ARPA-H Seed Funding

To help position Emory faculty for the launch of ARPA-H, the Office of the Sr. Vice President for Research, in consultation with the Office of the Provost, has created the ARPA-H seed funds program. These seeds are intended to lead to competitive ARPA-H proposals. In alignment with ARPA-H’s expected culture and processes, this seed funding aims to rapidly de-risk bold, revolutionary concepts in the biomedical and health sciences.

Given the unique culture of ARPA-H and its reliance on program managers to make funding decisions based on the Heilmeier Questions (and not peer review), awardees will receive tailored training and feedback on their responses to the Heilmeier Questions. During and after the conclusion of the seed project, seed recipients will work with the Office of Research Development to refine their ARPA-H pitch.
