The Swiss-based NOMIS Foundation is making a large five-year award for research into what makes the human brain unique. The research will be a collaboration between the laboratories of James P. Noonan, PhD, associate professor of genetics and of neuroscience at Yale School of Medicine, and Franck Polleux, PhD, professor of neuroscience at Columbia University and a member of that school’s Zuckerman Institute. Their combined mission is to understand the brain and mind.
