The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages applications for the NINDS Cooperative Program in Translational Research.*
Recent discoveries in the neurosciences offer promising opportunities for treatment of neurological disorders. The goal of this announcement is to implement a program of cooperative agreements that will support milestone-driven projects focused on the identification and preclinical testing of new therapies.
This program is intended to stimulate the development of partnerships between basic and clinical investigators, and agreements between the academic and industrial sectors, so that translational research in neuroscience can flourish as a cooperative process leading to new and effective interventions for neurological disorders.
