The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages grant applications for bioengineering research. This announcement is made together with 16 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
Many of today's biomedical problems are addressed using a multidisciplinary approach that extends beyond the traditional biological and clinical sciences. Bioengineering integrates principles from a diversity of technical and biomedical fields, and the resulting research provides new basic understandings, novel products, and innovative technologies that improve basic knowledge, health, and quality of life. Bioengineering also crosses the boundaries of scientific disciplines that are represented throughout academia, federal laboratories, and industry.
