BRAIN Initiative: Development, Optimization, and Validation of Novel Tools and Technologies for Neuroscience Research (STTR)(R41/R42 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PAR
Friday, December 15, 2017
Wednesday, January 6, 2021
R41/R42
PAR-18-515

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support the development of novel tools and technologies through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to advance the field of neuroscience research. This FOA specifically supports the development of novel neurotechnologies as well as the translation of technologies developed through the BRAIN initiative or through other funding programs, towards commercialization. Funding can support the iterative refinement of these tools and technologies with the end-user community, with an end-goal of scaling manufacture towards reliable, broad, sustainable dissemination and incorporation into regular neuroscience practice.

BRAIN Initiative: Biology and Biophysics of Neural Stimulation (R01 - Clinical Trials Optional)

RFA
Thursday, December 14, 2017
Wednesday, October 7, 2020
R01
RFA-NS-18-018

Funding Opportunity Purpose

A central goal of the BRAIN Initiative is to develop new and improved perturbation technologies suitable for controlling specified cell types and circuits to modulate function in the central nervous system. This FOA seeks applications to systematically characterize, model, and validate the membrane, cellular, circuit, and adaptive-biological responses of neuronal and non-neuronal cells to various types of stimulation. Development of new technologies and therapies, as well as of disease models are outside the scope of this FOA. However, activities related to combining multiple recording modalities are allowed. As part of this program, investigators will be required to participate in a consortium to develop standards and model systems for the evaluation of current and next generation neuromodulation technologies.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Planning Projects TargetedBCPP (R34 - Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

RFA
Thursday, December 14, 2017
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
R34
RFA-NS-18-014

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This R34 FOA solicits applications that offer a limited scope of aims and an approach that will establish feasibility, validity, or other technically qualifying results that, if successful, would support, enable, and/or lay the groundwork for a potential, subsequent Targeted Brain Circuits Projects - TargetedBCP R01, as described in the companion FOA (RFA-NS-18-009). Applications should be exploratory research projects that use innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior.

Academic Research Enhancement Award (Parent R15 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PA
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Friday, January 8, 2021
R15
PA-18-504

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. AREA grants are intended to support small-scale research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions, to expose undergraduate and/or graduate students to meritorious research projects, and to strengthen the research environment of the applicant institution.

Promoting Research in Basic Neuroscience (R01)

PAS
Friday, December 8, 2017
Friday, January 8, 2021
R01
PAS-18-483

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research addressing fundamental questions in basic neuroscience. Proposed projects can address any area of neuroscience within the missions of the participating institutes and should focus on understanding the development, the structure and/or the function of the normal nervous system. While fundamental basic research often generates insights relevant to disorders of the nervous system, this FOA is not intended to stimulate research that is explicitly disease-related.

NINDS Faculty Development Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research (K01) - Clinical Trial Not Allowed

K01
PAR-18-490

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of the NINDS Faculty Development Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research (K01) is to diversify the pool of independent neuroscience research investigators by providing junior faculty with research cost support, protected research time and career stage appropriate professional development mentorship in neuroscience research. Individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research are eligible for support under this award if they have doctoral research degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) and are in the first 3 years of a faculty tenure track or equivalent position at the time of award.

NIH Research Project Grant (Parent R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PA
Wednesday, December 6, 2017
Friday, January 8, 2021
R01
PA-18-484

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The NIH Research Project Grant supports a discrete, specified, circumscribed project in areas representing the specific interests and competencies of the investigator(s). The proposed project must be related to the programmatic interests of one or more of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) based on their scientific missions. This Funding Opportunity Announcement does not accept clinical trials.

NIH Small Research Grant Program (Parent R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PA
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

R03
PA-18-488

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The NIH Small Research Grant Program supports small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. This program supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. This Funding Opportunity Announcement does not accept clinical trials.

NINDS Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research (K22) - Clinical Trial Not Allowed

PAR
Monday, December 4, 2017
Friday, January 8, 2021
K22
PAR-18-469

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The NINDS Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity is designed to enhance the participation of highly trained early career investigators from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience research. This opportunity provides individuals from diverse backgrounds with strong training in neuroscience with the resources and tools that will help facilitate a transition to a stable and productive independent research position. Individuals from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience research are eligible for support under this award if they have doctoral research degrees (Ph.D., Ph.D./M.D. or equivalent) and between 2 and 5 years of postdoctoral prior research training at the time of application. The primary objectives of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) are to: (1) assist talented scientists from underrepresented groups to transition from postdoctoral training to a secure, independent research position and (2) enhance the conditions that promote establishing a strong and innovative independent program of research.
