NINDS invites grant applications to conduct basic biomedical research relevant to global health. This announcement is made together with 8 other NIH components.
The Global Research Initiative Program promotes the productive development of foreign investigators from low- and middle-income countries, who have trained in the US or in their home countries through an eligible NIH funded research grant/award. After training, participants are expected to continue independent and productive scientific careers, including providing expert training and consultation to others, and/or conducting basic and biomedical research within their home institutions. The program stimulates research on a wide variety of high priority health-related issues, and advances NIH’s efforts to address important global health issues.
