New Grant Funding For Max Planck Institute

The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience has received approximately $1,257,500 in recent grant funding from four prestigious national and international organizations. The institute, which opened its 100,000-square-foot research facility last December, focuses solely on basic neuroscience research that aims to analyze, map and decode the human brain — the most important and least understood organ in the body.

“The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience continues its mission to provide a new and more detailed understanding of the structure, development and functional organization of the nervous system,” said Scientific Director and CEO Dr. David Fitzpatrick. “These grants and the research they will support will pave the way for new insights, hopefully leading to advances in treatments and cures for brain disorders ranging from Parkinson’s to epilepsy.”

The results of the institute’s research will be shared publicly with scholars, universities and other institutions around the globe to advance life-saving and life-improving treatments and cures for brain disorders.
