Emory researchers win Distinguished Investigator grants for mental health projects
J. Douglas Bremner and Andrew H. Miller are among just 17 researchers around the country to receive Distinguished Investigator grants from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, the most of any university.
The $100,000, one-year grant is the foundation’s largest award, designed to support innovative projects that seek new potential targets for understanding and treating a wide range of mental health disorders. No other university had more than two researchers earn the award.
Drs. Bremner and Miller, both physicians and professors in the Emory University School of Medicine, received the 2017 awards announced in December. Both Dr. Bremner and Dr. Miller are NS faculty members.
