NIH invites Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) grant applications to support new biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible institutions.
This announcement is supported by funds provided to the NIH under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The purpose of AREA is to stimulate research in educational institutions that have not been major recipients of NIH support, but that provide degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists. AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions, otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH programs, to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. These grants support small-scale health-related research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible institutions.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Randall Stewart, program director, Channels, Synapses, and Circuits Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1917; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-OD-09-007.html.
