NINDS encourages applications for countermeasures against chemical threats (CounterACT) cooperative research projects and centers of excellence. This announcement is made together with 6 other NIH components and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: U01 and U54.

Chemical threats could cause mass casualties after being released by a terrorist attack, an industrial accident, or a natural disaster. The purpose of this announcement is to support the development of therapeutics that effectively can treat individuals during a chemical emergency event.
