Brain and Behavioural Sciences Early-Career Advisory Group

This advisory group shortlists candidates for Wellcome Early-Career Awards.

Its remit covers applications that aim to advance our understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system at all levels – from the molecular to the cognitive – across the lifespan.

Examples include:

  • experimental, theoretical and computational studies
  • investigations in humans and model systems, targeting basic cellular, molecular and systems-related questions
  • mechanisms of psychiatric and neurological diseases and how therapeutic interventions work
  • impact of genetic, environmental and social factors on cellular, molecular, behavioural and cognitive phenotypes.


We will publish membership details in the autumn.
