The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications to support continued software development and maintenance. This announcement is made together with 6 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).*
Biomedical research laboratories increasingly undertake software development projects to solve problems of interest to their individual laboratories. These software packages sometimes become useful to a much broader community of users, including translational and clinical researchers. The purpose of this program announcement is to assure the availability and continued usefulness of existing biomedical informatics/computational biology software.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: modernizing existing software so that it is easy to modify, extend, repair, and evolve; fully documenting software; extending interoperability among different software packages or among software and existing databases; and combining existing software with modern ontologies or libraries of controlled vocabularies.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, Chief, Office of International Activities, NINDS,
Neuroscience Center, 6001 Executive Boulevard, Room 2187, Bethesda, MD 20892; telephone: 301-496-1917;
fax: 301-402-1501; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
