The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages applications for bioengineering research partnerships. This announcement is made together with 12 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Many of today's biomedical problems are best addressed using a multidisciplinary approach that extends beyond the traditional biological and clinical sciences. The primary objective of this announcement is to encourage basic, applied, and translational bioengineering research that could significantly improve human health. Bioengineering integrates physical, engineering, and computational science principles for the study of biology, medicine, behavior, or health. It advances fundamental concepts, creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ systems level, and develops innovative biologicals, materials, processes, implants, devices, and informatics approaches for patient rehabilitation, improving health, and the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
