The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invite Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications to develop high throughput data acquisition and analysis tools to aid basic behavioral science or neuroscience research.*
Many of the common technologies used in neuroscience and behavioral science research require extensive time, labor, and cost for acquiring and analyzing data. There is a strong need to develop tools to make data collection and analysis more efficient, without compromising competency.
Applications considered appropriate for this announcement include those proposing research and development of tools for high throughput measures at any level (or combination of levels) of analysis--from molecules through behavior, including social behavior. The tools should be aimed at rapid acquisition and analysis of data useful to understanding the brain and behavior. The tools must be relevant to neuroscience and/or behavioral science appropriate to the missions of NINDS and NIMH.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Emmeline Edwards, Program Director, Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience Cluster, NINDS, Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, Room 2109, Bethesda, MD 20892; telephone: 301-496-9964; fax: 301-402-2060; e-mail: email@example.com.
