The Center Without Walls (CWW) leverages resources and capabilities within the broader PTNI and is available to St. Jude faculty from all departments that are engaged on relevant neuroscience research. The CWW encourages institution-wide collaborations that advance the understanding of pediatric neurological diseases. Membership is open to clinical and basic science faculty working on neuroscience-themed research and allows access to PTNI core facilities and resources. By providing technical and intellectual support, the CWW will create new capabilities and foster greater productivity.
Investigators across the institution will have opportunities to secure internal grant funding for developmental and small-scale projects that align with the goals and mission of the PTNI. These multi-year institutional grants are designed to bolster investigators as they generate preliminary data and formulate hypotheses to secure extramural support to further expand research efforts.
