NINDS invites applications for research on mechanisms of functional recovery after stroke. This announcement is made together with 3 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
While stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States, it is the leading cause of long-term disability in the American population. This announcement seeks to expand studies on basic brain mechanisms of repair and plasticity after stroke, and on factors that influence these mechanisms. In addition, methods and approaches to improve and enhance reparative processes may be investigated, toward the goal of optimizing and developing promising new approaches to rehabilitation and functional recovery after stroke.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Eugene Golanov, Program Director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
