NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Collaborative Research in Stem Cell Biology (R21)

Funding Contact(s): David Owens, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Repair and Plasticity

Brief Description:

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) with a set-aside fosters co-operation between investigators and joint research projects to understand how fate choices are made by stem and precursor cells in the nervous system, and to design, refine, and improve upon the use of stem cells for diagnostic or therapeutic applications for neurological disorders. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is interested in supporting research that combines the unique and complementary expertise of laboratories from the United States and abroad, applying different disciplines, techniques, model systems or tissues. We anticipate that such research will ultimately lead to innovative approaches for the prevention, management and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, and encourage collaborations from disparate scientific areas and disciplines, including those not traditionally supported by the NINDS. It is essential, however, that the proposed activities be within the mission of the NINDS.
