Expiration Date: Friday, January 1, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-068 Release Date: Friday, April 12, 2024 Notice Type: NOT
NINDS is joining the NOSI
Expiration Date: Monday, February 15, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-071 Release Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2024 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The purpose of this NOSI is to encourage eligible NINDS awardees in the Alzheimers Disease and Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) research community to apply for administrative supplements in response to PA-21-071, "Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research," or any reissues of this announcement through the expiration date of this Notice. The NIH has a strong interest in the diversity of the NIH-funded workforce (see NOT-OD-20-031 for details) and encourages institutions to diversify their student populations by enhancing the participation of individuals from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences. Goal 1 of The National Plan to Address Alzheimers Disease is to prevent and effectively treat AD/ADRD by 2025. This initiative addresses the critical need to increase the number of health professionals who are trained to meet the expanding demand for cognitive impairment and dementia diagnosis, care, and clinical research to meet Goal 1.
Expiration Date: Friday, June 19, 2026 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-24-078 Release Date: Wednesday, March 27, 2024 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
This notice announces the availability of funds from the Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS) to NIH-managed or NIH-majority-funded projects that may benefit from using the cloud. The purpose of this announcement is to explore and test potential opportunities for leveraging cloud solutions to enhance existing NIH activities. Projects already using cloud may apply to explore and test cloud capabilities not yet leveraged. This initiative is aligned with the NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science, which describes actions aimed at building a better data infrastructure and a modernized data ecosystem.
Expiration Date: Friday, November 5, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-24-079 Release Date: Tuesday, March 26, 2024 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
In alignment with the White House Initiative on Womens Health Research, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is issuing this Notice of Special Interest to highlight interest in receiving research applications focused on diseases and health conditions that predominantly affect women (e.g., autoimmune diseases; depressive disorders, Alzheimers disease (AD) and Alzheimers disease-related dementias (ADRD), gender-based-violence), present and progress differently in women (e.g., cardiovascular disease; HIV; reproductive aging and its implications), or are female-specific (e.g., uterine fibroids; endometriosis; menopause).
Expiration Date: Friday, January 1, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-067 Release Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2024 Notice Type: NOT
The purpose of this notice is to rescind NOT-NS-22-115 "Notice of Change to the NINDS' Policy on Special Council Review of Research Applications". This notice has been replaced with NOT-NS-24-060 "Notice of Change to NINDS' Policy on Special Council Review of Research Applications".
Expiration Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2026 NOFO Number: NOT-AI-24-022 Release Date: Friday, March 8, 2024 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
NIAID announces the availability of funds for administrative supplement awards to promote the development of pediatric chemical research models and medical countermeasures (MCM) discovery under the Chemical Countermeasures Research Program (CCRP). There is currently an unmet need in understanding the natural history, pathophysiology, and treatment of critical illness in infants, children, adolescents, and young adults after exposure to highly toxic DHS-designated Chemicals of Concern (CoCs). The administrative supplement funds are intended to support pilot preclinical projects by CCRP-supported researchers that focus on 1) Basic research to elucidate mechanistic differences in susceptibility to CoCs between pediatric and adult populations and/or 2) Applied research towards the discovery and early development of pediatric-safe MCMs.
Expiration Date: Friday, January 1, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-072 Release Date: Friday, March 8, 2024 Notice Type: NOT
The purpose of this notice is to inform applicants of a correction to the revision application due dates for the May 2026 council round for PAR-24-151 "Translational Neural Devices (R61/R33 - Clinical Trial Optional)".

Adding receipt dates
Expiration Date: Friday, January 1, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-053 Release Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2024 Notice Type: NOT
The NINDS Materials to Enhance Training in Experimental Rigor (METER) UE5 will support curriculum development in the form of innovative educational materials that will be incorporated into a new cutting-edge online resource that aims to promote awareness, understanding, and practice of fundamental principles of rigorous biomedical research for researchers and other scientists in various career stages and learning environments.This UE5 FOA runs in parallel with a companion UC2 FOA that solicits applications for the NINDS center for Creating an Educational Nexus for Training in Experimental Rigor (CENTER), described in detail in RFA-NS-21-009.
Expiration Date: Friday, January 1, 2027 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-24-060 Release Date: Wednesday, February 28, 2024 Notice Type: NOT
This Notice announces an update to the NINDS Special Council Review (SCR) policy to exclude the pending application and set the threshold at $1.5 million in total costs per year (inclusive of direct and indirect costs). This change brings NINDS into closer alignment with NIHs implementations of SCR NOT-OD-22-049. This policy does not represent a cap on NINDS funding.
