The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for Fogarty International Research Collaboration Awards in Basic Biomedical Sciences (FIRCA-BB) Research. This announcement is made together with 9 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).*
The objectives of the FIRCA program are to support collaborative research efforts between NIH-funded scientists and scientists in developing countries on research of high scientific merit, relevant to global health, and of mutual interest and benefit, and to help build research capabilities and foster further sustained and productive research and research collaborations at the foreign sites.
The NINDS is specifically interested in funding FIRCA awards that are relevant to its mission, and encourages basic and translational neuroscience research that will lead to the reduction of neurological disease borne by every age group and segment of society throughout the world.
