NINDS encourages grant applications for exploratory or developmental translational research on countermeasures against chemical threats (CounterACT). This announcement is made together with 5 other NIH components.

Chemical threats are toxic chemicals that could be released by a deliberate terrorist attack, by accident, or by natural disaster, causing mass casualties. NIH has developed a comprehensive CounterACT program that supports basic, translational, and clinical research aimed at discovering and/or identifying better medical countermeasures against chemical threats, and their movement through the regulatory process. The program’s overarching goal is to enhance medical response capabilities during an emergency. This initiative supports exploratory and developmental translational research projects on therapeutics for reducing death and disease caused by exposure to chemical threats.
