NINDS invites NIH-funded investigators to submit supplement applications to their currently funded research to study how interactions among genetic, behavioral, or social factors influence health and disease.  This award is made together with 16 other NIH components and is supported by a number of funding mechanisms:  R01, R21, P01, P20, P50, P60, U01, U10, and U54.

How genetic, behavioral, and social factors interact in human physiological processes and influence disease expression and health outcomes remains understudied.  This announcement focuses on questions concerning the effects of gene-environment-behavioral interactions.  Another focus of the announcement is to better understand how the interaction of behaviors and social environment factors affects gene expression, disease and behavior phenotypes, and health outcomes. 

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Margaret Sutherland, Program Director, Neurodegeneration Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-5680; e-mail:  For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit,, or
