The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for collaborations with national centers for biomedical computing (NCBC). This announcement is made together with 9 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).*
The NIH NCBCs are partnerships that bring together computational scientists, biomedical computational scientists, and experimental and clinical biomedical and behavioral researchers. The partnerships are designed to produce, validate, and disseminate tools and computational environments that will be useful to a broad spectrum of biomedical researchers across the nation. The major goal of this program announcement is to provide resources for a wide range of biomedical, behavioral, and computational researchers to establish new collaborations with the NIH NCBCs.
Areas of research interest include, but are not limited to: behavioral science; biological rhythms; biomedical imaging; cell biology; demographic and social science; developmental biology; drug design at the molecular and cellular levels; dynamic modeling of health, chronic disease, and disablement; environmental health science; epidemiology; genetics; genomics; immunology/inflammation; infectious disease; informatics support for diagnosis and clinical decision-making; medical genetics; morphology; neurobiology and cognitive science; pharmacology and toxicology; physiology; population biology; structural biology; substance abuse research; surgery and virtual tools; and systems biology and signal transduction pathways and networks.
