Funding Opportunities

The Brain and Behavioral Health Institute (BBHI) of the University of New Mexico (UNM) Health Sciences Center (HSC) is soliciting applications from all HSC faculty members for mini-grants to help access UNM core resources in Domenici Hall. 

Domenici Hall is being developed as the hub for interdisciplinary brain and behavioral research programs at UNM HSC.  Core resources include state of the art facilities and services for rodent behavioral testing, animal MRI, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), optical and electrophysiology, cell and molecular, image analysis, neuropsychological testing and clinical assessment. 

All core services operate on a fee-for-service basis and, while rates are modest, it is appreciated that some users do not have grant or departmental funds available for UNM core user fees.  For this reason, we are allocating BBHI funds through this mini-grant mechanism, to be used specifically for core user fees, for UNM Domenici Hall cores.

Please see the complete Request for Applications (RFA) [PDF] for details regarding the BBHI Mini-Grants. You may also contact Greg Trejo ( or 272-7252) for all application forms.
