The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for planning grants that lead to the establishment of national programs of excellence in biomedical computing. This announcement is made together with 16 other NIH components.*
Computing and computational tools have become increasingly important in enabling progress in biomedical research. There exists an expanding opportunity to speed the progress of biomedical research through the power of computing especially in areas concerning management and analysis of data, and modeling biological processes.
Some potential areas of research include: databases, querying approaches, information retrieval, and data visualization; computing algorithms and new analysis and statistical methodologies for social science research related to areas of biomedical interest such as population aging; new approaches to data integration; and research and development of models or simulation environments.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, Channels, Synapses and Circuits Cluster, NINDS, Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, Room 2110B, Bethesda, MD 20892; telephone: (301) 496-1917; fax: (301) 480-2424; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
