NIH encourages applications for collaborations with National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC).
This announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments.
NCBCs are the hubs of a networked national effort to build the computational infrastructure for biomedical computing. The intention of these collaborations is to engage researchers to build an excellent biomedical computing environment by using the computational tools and biological and behavioral application drivers of the funded NCBCs as foundation stones.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, chief, Office of International Activities, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-0012; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
