NINDS encourages grant applications for research on angiogenesis in the nervous system in disease and health.  This announcement is made together with 4 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms:  R01 and R21.

Angiogenesis—the formation of new blood vessels—is one of the most understudied areas in basic neuroscience.  What is known about this process suggests it is of enormous importance both to the normal function of the nervous system and in many diseases.  The aim of this announcement is to stimulate research on angiogenesis in the nervous system.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. David Owens, Program Director, Repair and Plasticity Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1447; email:  do47h@nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this program announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-08-015.html or http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-08-016.html.
