NINDS invites applications for research on nanoscience and nanotechnology in biology and medicine. This announcement is made together with 15 other NIH components and is supported by two funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology refer to the understanding and control of matter at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels at the length scale of approximately 1 - 100 nanometers. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to stimulate research approaches that have the potential to make valuable contributions to biology and medicine. Nanoscience and nanotechnology can bring fundamental changes to the study and understanding of biological processes in health and disease, as well as enable novel diagnostics and interventions for treating disease.
