The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications for research on brain disorders across the lifespan that are relevant to developing countries. 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 Association of Autism Research (NAAR).

The purpose of this announcement is to support research on the development and conduct of innovative, collaborative research and research training projects, between developed and developing country scientists, on brain disorders throughout life, relevant to low- and middle-income nations. The collaborative research programs should involve research on neurological/neurodevelopmental (including sensory, motor, cognitive and behavioral) 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-07-268.html.
