NINDS invites grant applications on neuroimaging informatics software enhancement for improved interoperability and dissemination. This announcement is made together with 16 other NIH components and is affiliated with the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research.
The Blueprint is a framework to enhance cooperative activities among the 16 NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices that support research on the nervous system.
In order to be broadly shared and extended, neuroimaging informatics tools and resources must be well-characterized, well-documented, and have a user-friendly interface. However, the developers of these tools often do not have resources available to characterize the tools for general use, provide quality documentation regarding the tools, or provide a standard user interface. They also do not have time to distribute or to perform subsequent troubleshooting as the tools are broadly shared. The purpose of this announcement is to make existing neuroimaging informatics tools and resources more adoptable, interoperable, and usable.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Zohara Cohen, Division of Discovery Science and Technology, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering; telephone: 301-451-4778; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
