MINT Program

The McGovern Institute Neurotechnology (MINT) program was created in 2006 and aims to develop new technologies for brain research. With support from the institute’s founders, the MINT program provides seed funding for collaborative projects that are developing new tools and technology platforms for neuroscience research.

MINT awards are typically made for a one-year period, and in some cases can cover up to $100,000 in direct costs. Funding can be extended for a second year, although this is not guaranteed. Projects involve collaboration between a McGovern Investigator (including associate investigators) and researchers from outside of the McGovern Institute. Priority is given to collaborations with other departments and disciplines within MIT, although we can also consider proposals that involve external collaborators.
