NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (COUNTERACT) Preclinical Development Facility

Funding Contact(s): Helene Braun
Funding Categories: Translational Research

Brief Description:

The increased risk of a terrorist attack in the United States involving chemical agents has created new challenges for many departments and agencies across the federal government. Within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the NIH is taking a leadership role in pursuing the development of new and improved medical countermeasures designed to prevent, diagnose, and treat the conditions caused by potential and existing chemical agents of terrorism. In addition, many of the same chemicals posing a threat as terrorist agents may also be released from transportation and storage facilities by industrial accidents or during a natural disaster.
