The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for institutional center core grants
to support neuroscience research.*
These grants will support centralized resources and facilities shared by investigators with existing NINDS-funded research projects. Each center will be composed of one or more research cores—each of which will enrich the effectiveness of ongoing research and promote new research directions. In addition, the grants will support individual neuroscience research projects by providing necessary resources and performing required services that would be difficult or impractical to provide in individual labs. The center core grants will promote a cooperative and interactive research environment through which multidisciplinary approaches to neuroscience problems and joint research efforts will be stimulated.
Areas of research interest include, but are not limited to: animal models (general, phenotyping, and transgenic); animal surgery; assay development; cell culture; electrophysiology; gene vector development and production; microarrays; molecular biology; protein analysis; radiochemistry; neuropathology; and neurotoxicology.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Thomas Miller, Program Director, Technology Development Group, NINDS, Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, Room 2139, Bethesda, MD 20892; telephone:
301-496-1779; fax: 301-402-1501; e-mail: email@example.com.
