The Brain Architecture Project began with a focus on informatics and on the human brain, with seed funding support provided by the WM Keck Foundation that enabled planning meetings at the Banbury conference center at CSHL in 2006-8.

The project received funding in the fall of 2009 from the NIH to systematically map brainwide connectivity in the mouse brain.  An announcement of the Transformative R01 award from the NIH director’s office is here.

Currently the project is supported by the G. Harold and Leila Y. Mathers Charitable Foundation in addition to funding from the NIH and the NSF.

A related project is funded by the Simons Foundation. Partha Mitra additionally receives support from the Crick-Clay Professorship in Biomathematics at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
