NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Exploratory/Developmental Awards in Epilepsy Research for Junior Investigators

Funding Contact: NINDS Funding Coordinator
Funding Categories: Channels, Synapses and Circuits

Brief Description:

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is interested in promoting collaborations among junior investigators (Postdoctoral Fellows through Assistant Professors, or equivalent) to stimulate translational research in the field of epilepsy. To this end the NINDS invites exploratory/developmental research grant applications (R21) in patient- oriented research, developmental neurobiology, genetics, advanced technology, imaging, pharmacotherapeutics, or other research areas, which are likely to lead to the cure of epilepsy (defined as "the prevention of epilepsy before it occurs in people at risk, and the cessation of seizures without therapy-associated side effects in those who develop the disease").
