  • Transversal projects

From 2011 to 2018, LabEx BRAIN launched 5 calls for projects to deepen and expand Bordeaux Neurocampus collaborations. All projects involve partners from at least 2 different laboratories from Bordeaux Neurocampus. The evaluation criteria are based on the project significance, complementarity, multidisciplinary approach and innovation.

.

  • Clinical research projects

2 calls were launched in 2015 and in 2017 to support transversal projects. It consists of financing clinical trials (physiological, pathophysiological, diagnostic or interventional therapeutic, industrial trials) in healthy or unhealthy subjects.

.

  • New team

In 2014, LabEx launched an international call for applications to set up a new team within the SANPSY unit. The selected candidate received a competitive start-up package including running costs, equipments and salaries to set-up her team.

.

  • Core facilities

10 core facilities are selected to be supported by the LabEx. The aim of this program is to offer high-end technical equipment and services to all Bordeaux Neurocampus teams at a reduced price. The IBISA labeling of 3 facilities testifies to the quality of this program.

> TRAINING

.

  • PhD Extension Grant

The LabEx BRAIN offers students from Bordeaux a fellowship to complete their Ph.D thesis, immediately after a 3 year Ph.D, covering a period to finish their projects before leaving for a post-doc.

.

  • Bordeaux School of Neuroscience

The LabEx BRAIN allowed the acquisition of all initial equipment for the creation of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience.

Unique in Europe, the vocation of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience is to offer the international/European Community a platform of high technological level, giving the opportunity to organize training for research in neuroscience based on experimental practice. The BSN has been selected by FENS/IBRO to be the major partner site of the Cajal Advanced Neuroscience Training Program.

> DISSEMINATION

.

  • Applied research projects Technological Transfer

BRAIN launched a call in 2015 to support applied research projects with high potential economic impact. These projects include the discovery, development or optimization of innovative therapeutic or diagnostic products, as well as the promotion of research resources dedicated to the discovery of new therapies or diagnostic tools (in silico, cellular or animal screening methods).

.

> KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

.

The LabEx BRAIN supports symposiums organized in Bordeaux.

It is also implicated in popularization, such as conferences, debates, workshops for a general audience, in the context of “brain week” (“la semaine du cerveau”) or the “science festival” (“la fête de la science”).
