- The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages submission of investigator-initiated research grant applications to study mechanisms of transmission and dissemination of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs).
- 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 applications received.
- The types of mechanisms to be used are Research Project (R01), Small Grant (R03), and Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21).
- Eligible organizations include: for-profit or non-profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State and local governments; eligible agencies of the Federal government; and domestic or foreign institutions/organizations.
- Eligible principal investigators include any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs.
- Applicants may submit more than one application, provided they are scientifically distinct.
- See Section IV.1 for application materials.
