NINDS invites applications for research on brain disorders in the developing world, across the lifespan. This announcement is made together with 8 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
During the past several decades, improvements in healthcare have led to a decrease in child mortality and an increase in life expectancy in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). The purpose of this announcement is to encourage innovative, collaborative research and research training projects, between high income country and LMIC scientists, on nervous system function and disorders throughout life.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, Chief, Office of International Activities, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-0012; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
