Year Awarded
Dana NextGen

A Foundation planning grant for a potential Dana Center for Neuroscience & Society was awarded to Loyola University Chicago. The proposed Center focused on a neuroethics-fueled approach to increasing interest in neuroscience research careers among underrepresented high school and middle school students, the development of novel ethics-enhanced master’s programs in neuroscience, a unique neuroethics competition, and integrating neuroscience research with the humanities, social equity, and community engagement. The planning grant team assembled a group of faculty from multiple schools at Loyola Chicago (Education, Business, Medicine, Communication, Law) and disciplines (Fine Arts, Philosophy, Computer Science).
