NINDS invites applications for the NIH Exploratory Developmental Research Grant Program.  This announcement is made together with 18 other NIH components.

The evolution and vitality of the biomedical sciences require a constant infusion of new ideas, techniques, and points of view. These may differ substantially from current thinking or practice and may not yet be supported by substantial preliminary data.  This initiative encourages the introduction of novel scientific ideas, model systems, tools, agents, targets, and technologies that have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research.  These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to a development that could have a major impact on a field of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research.

Potential applicants should contact the NINDS Referral Officer at 301-496-9223 or nindsreview.nih.gov@mail.nih.gov.  For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-10-069.html.
