Brain Cancer and Complex Systems

The James S. McDonnell Foundation is inviting grant applications for research in two areas: 1) Research Awards in Brain Cancer Research; and 2) Scholar Awards in Studying Complex Systems. The Brain Cancer Research program emphasizes novel research that will generate new knowledge leading to increased rates of survival and improve functional recovery for individuals with brain cancer. The Complex Systems program supports research to develop theoretical and mathematical tools that can be applied to the study of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems.
