NINDS requests grant applications for exceptional, unconventional research enabling knowledge acceleration (EUREKA). This announcement is made together with 8 other NIH components.
The EUREKA initiative fosters exceptionally innovative research that, if successful, will have an unusually high impact on the areas of science that are germane to the mission of the participating NIH Institutes. EUREKA is for new projects, not for continuation of existing projects. EUREKA does not support pilot projects. This announcement encourages applications from investigators who want to test novel, unconventional hypotheses or pursue major methodological or technical challenges. The potential impact of the proposed research must be substantial, in terms of both the size of the scientific community affected and the magnitude of its impact on that community.
Application Receipt Date is November 24, 2009.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Edmund Talley, program director, Channels, Synapes, 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-GM-10-009.html.
