NINDS invites grant applications for research on predictive multiscale models of the physiome in health and disease. This announcement is made together with 11 other NIH components.
The goal of this announcement is to move forward the field of biomedical computational modeling through the development of more realistic and predictive models of health and disease. These models may be designed to uncover biological mechanisms or to make predictions about clinical outcome and may draw on a variety of data sources including relevant clinical data. Ultimately the models and the information derived from their use will enable biomedical and behavioral researchers, and clinicians to better understand, prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases or aberrations in normal development.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, Chief, Office of International Activities, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-0012; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For a more detailed description of this program announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-023.html.
