Request for Information (RFI) on the NIH CTSA Neuroscience Research


N I H Neuroscience Blueprint Logo

This RFI (NOT-NS-11-007) seeks information on critical gaps and challenges and potential approaches to resolve them in order to enhance resources for neuroscience research using infrastructure available through CTSA institutional, regional, and the national consortium. Ideas for both short-term (6 months-1 year) and long-term (2-5 years) approaches to develop and coordinate neuroscience research and research resources are welcome. Members of the scientific community, scientific organizations, healthcare professionals, patient advocates, and the public are invited to respond to any, or all of the following:

  1. - Describe the critical gaps and other challenges in neuroscience research that the CTSAs might address. Challenges can be at the level of clinical and translational research, clinical trials, participant recruitment & retention, special populations, team science and collaborative networking, infrastructure, workforce resources, information systems and technology, methodology, interventions, and the execution, implementation, and evaluation of programs.

  2. - Describe what you believe to be the most innovative approaches to address these challenges.
