NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Scalable Assays for Unbiased In Vitro Analysis of Neurobiological Function (R21/R33)

Funding Contact(s): Edmund Talley, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Channels, Synapses and Circuits

Brief Description:

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications from institutions/organizations to develop novel, robust analytical platforms using in vitro assays to reveal changes in neuronal and/or glial function. The goal is to adapt state-of-the-art measures of basic cellular processes or molecular events that are key mediators of nervous system function with the intent to probe mechanisms and/or perturbations in an unbiased and efficient manner. The novel assay platforms would provide opportunities to measure neurobiological endpoints and build a pipeline to be used in the context of target identification and drug discovery.
