NINDS at Neuroscience 2022

November 12, 2022 | 8:00 - November 16, 2022 | 5:00

NINDS was enthusiastic to support an on-site exhibit at the 2022 Neuroscience meeting in San Diego, CA from November 13-16th, but we also know that many in our scientific and public communities might not have attended the meeting in person. This event page mirrors the content and opportunities shared at the on-site exhibit for any member of the NINDS community interested in learning about our programs, initiatives, funding announcements, career opportunities, and other resources relevant to attendees of the annual Neuroscience meeting. 

NINDS staff were available at the booth to speak with attendees about training and career development grants, diversity programs, small business programs, HEAL Initiative, neurotherapeutics, neural devices, neurotoxicology, neural engineering, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dementias, pain, NINDS job opportunities, and more. 

As always, if you have a programmatic question at any time of year, please use our Resources below to connect with us!

We appreciated those who shared their perspectives on patient engagement or participated in a quick exercise to help us improve the Funding section of our website, live at the annual meeting.

The combined portfolio spans early concept generation, technology development/optimization, translational studies and clinical trials.
  • Accelerating Medicines Partnership® Program for Parkinson's Disease (AMP®PD): AMP®PD is a public-private partnership between government, industry, and nonprofit organizations focusing on identifying and validating biomarkers for predicting Parkinson’s disease, tracking disease progression, and validating therapeutic targets.
  • Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias:  NINDS collaborates with NIH’s National Institute on Aging (NIA), the lead NIH Institute for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research, to establish research priorities and fund biomedical research in AD as well as several Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (ADRDs).

Division of Translational Research

Division of Clinical Research

  • NINDS Division of Clinical Research (DCR): DCR provides oversight for clinical trials to test the safety and efficacy of innovative treatments of neurological disorders and stroke, epidemiological studies of natural history, biomarker studies, and studies designed to elucidate the causes of neurological disorders.
  • Office of Global Health and Health Disparities (OGHHD): OGHHD leads the coordination and development of programs and initiatives that foster global research and research on health disparities in neurological disorders and stroke.  
  • NINDS Common Data Elements (CDE): NINDS supports the streamlining of neuroscience clinical research by using content standards that enable clinical investigators to systematically collect, analyze, and share data across the research community.
