Gene Discovery for Neurological and Neurobehavioral Disorders

Funding Contact(s): Robert Finkelstein, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Neurogenetics

Brief Description:

The goal of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to promote the identification of genes that cause or contribute to human neurological and neurobehavioral diseases. It is intended to encourage applications for genetics research projects with one or more of the following objectives: (1) to identify the gene or genes that produce disease susceptibility (2) to identify “modifier” genes that affect disease susceptibility or outcome and (3) to investigate the relationship between genotype and disease phenotype. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of such projects, collaborative studies are encouraged. Studies using invertebrate or vertebrate animal models are appropriate if they directly promote the identification of human disease susceptibility genes.
