NINDS and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) encourage small business grant applications to develop high throughput tools for brain and behavior. This announcement is supported by two funding mechanisms: SBIR and STTR.
Analytic tools that can screen for particular characteristics at high rates are crucial to discovery science and increasingly valuable in both basic research (e.g., phenotyping) and applied research (e.g., drug discovery). The intent of this announcement is to support commercial development of technologies for high throughput data acquisition and analysis that can aid basic behavioral science or neuroscience.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Margaret Grabb, NIMH; telephone: 301-443-3563; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
