Global Brain and Nervous System Disorders Research Across the Lifespan (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages exploratory/developmental research grant applications, proposing the development of innovative, collaborative research projects on brain and other nervous system function and disorders throughout life, relevant to low- and middle-income countries

(LMICs).

Scientists in the United States (U.S.) or upper middle income countries (UMICs) are eligible to partner with scientists in LMIC institutions.

Income categories used are as defined by the World Bank at http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups.

These grants are expected to inform the development of more comprehensive research programs that 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, treatment and implementation strategies.

The proposed work may also contribute to developing a base for research networking and evidence-based policy beyond the specific research project.
