Program Summary

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) intends to publish a FOA to solicit applications for Institutional Center Core Grants to Support Neuroscience Research. Applicants must have a minimum of six NINDS R01-supported investigators, plus a wider base of neuroscience research labs. Applications should propose core resources and facilities offering services and expertise that would be difficult or impractical to support in individual labs, and should capitalize on economies and synergies associated with resource sharing.
