Northcentral University is the co-recipient of a $6.3 million grant to study the brain basis of religious thought. Dr. Patrick McNamara, faculty member in the Department of Psychology within the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Dr. Jordan Grafman, co-PI and director of brain injury research at Chicago’s Shirly Ryan AbilityLab, will partner to study which parts of the brain are activated when people perform religious cognition tasks or undergo religious and spiritual experiences. Congratulations to Dr. McNamara and his team! Learn more about the grant and proposed research activities in the NU press release.
Writing a successful proposal takes time and skill. Best practices and reminders for new and experienced PI/PDs center on pre-planning and finding the right funding match. Focusing on these two areas during development will likely increase your probability of success and add value to your proposal writing.
