Brain Disorders in the Developing World: Research Across the Lifespan (R21)

-Purpose.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages exploratory/developmental planning grant applications proposing the development of innovative, collaborative research and research training projects, between high income country (HIC) and low- to middle-income country (LMIC) scientists,

on brain and other nervous system function and disorders throughout life, relevant to LMICs.

The planning grants are expected to lead to full research programs which contribute to the long-term goals of building sustainable research capacity in LMICs to address nervous system development, function and impairment throughout life and to lead to diagnostics, prevention, and treatment strategies that are applicable worldwide.

-Mechanism of Support.

This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/ Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PAR-08-112, which encourages applications under the R01 grant mechanism.

-Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards.

The anticipated number of awards is six to 15; however, awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary.

The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the application received.
