CANTAB Research Grant 2018 - Results
The results of the 2018 CANTAB Research Grant are in! Once again we were overwhelmed by the quality of applications we received – which made it a tough job for our judging panel to narrow the research proposals down.
However, we could only pick three winning applications... and this year we have chosen the following entrants as our 2018 CANTAB Research Grant Award winners.
The 2018 CANTAB Research Grant winning entries
Dr Ilan Goldberg at The Wolfson Medical Centre, Tel Aviv University, Israel - Cognitive assessment in patients with malignancy: the effects of chemotherapy and neuroinflammation.
Naoise Mac Giollabhui at Temple University, USA - Chronic inflammation as a pathway to cognitive dysfunction in adolescents and young adults with a history of elevated depressive symptoms.
Elaine Lim at Harvard Medical School, USA - Evaluating the use of online cognitive tests for quantitative genetic discoveries associated with Alzheimer’s disease in the general population.
We are really looking forward to seeing the results of these projects and working with all applicants in the future.
We’d also like to thank everyone who entered, for their interest in CANTAB. We really appreciate the time and effort involved in submitting your application. We wish you well in your research and invite you to keep an eye on our website and social media channels to be the first to learn about the launch of the CANTAB Research Grant for 2019.
In the meantime, please take a look at our Research Funding and Grant Application Guide for advice on funding applications.
