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

Funder: National Institutes of Health

Due Date: 10/6/2020

Budget: Negotiable

Opportunity: RFA-NS-18-018

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.
