NINDS encourages applications for the global research initiative program for basic/biomedical sciences research. This announcement is made together with 6 other NIH components.
The goal of this initiative is to provide funding opportunities to foreign scientists, nurses, and other health professionals upon return to their home countries. The funding supports training in state-of-the-art research methods to advance critical issues in global health through basic and biomedical sciences research and technology development. After their term of research training, low- to middle-income country participants will be able to continue independent and productive scientific careers, including expert training and consultation, and/or research on basic and biomedical science issues within their home institutions.
