1907 Research wants early career scientists’ most daring mental health ideas for its Trailblazer Awards

Top tips

  • Do not shy away from topics that are rarely addressed in mental health research.
  • Be wary of classifying mental illnesses based on symptoms; show that your thinking goes deeper than that.
  • Be aware that 1907 Research’s board, research committee and reviewers have a largely neurological focus.
  • Lacking a strong publication record is no barrier to success but you must show that you can perform the research as proposed.
  • Innovation is the most important criterion in grant assessment.
