NINDS invites applications for innovations in biomedical computational science and technology. This announcement is made together with 13 other NIH components and is supported by 4 funding mechanisms: R01, R21, R41/R42, and R43/R44.
Biomedical informatics and computational biology includes database design, graphical interfaces, querying approaches, data retrieval, data visualization and manipulation, data integration through the development of integrated analytical tools, and tools for electronic collaboration, as well as computational and mathematical research which includes the development of structural, functional, integrative, and analytical computational models and simulations. This announcement supports biomedical informatics and computational biology research, including exploratory innovations. Investigators may target one or multiple areas of biomedical computing that will enable progress in biomedical research. For exploratory innovations, applications should be innovative, with high risk/high impact in new areas that are lacking preliminary data or development.
