The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages grant applications for research on brain disorders across the lifespan relevant to developing nations. This announcement is made together with 9 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the National Alliance for Autism Research (NAAR).

The purpose of this initiative is to support innovative, collaborative research and research training projects-between scientists from developed and developing countries-on brain disorders throughout life, relevant to low- and middle-income nations. The collaborative programs should involve research on neurological or neurodevelopmental function and impairment throughout life, and contribute to the long-term goal of building sustainable research capacity in developing countries to initiate and conduct such research.

For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Yuan Liu, Chief, Office of International Activities, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1917; e-mail: yl5o@nih.gov. For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-06-420.html.
