Transformations in Translational Neuroscience

NIH: NIDA (R01)

Neuroscience Research on Drug Abuse (R01). The goals of the research areas described in this Neuroscience of Drug Abuse FOA are to understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying drug abuse and addiction, with special emphasis on changes that occur during chronic drug use, withdrawal and relapse. PA-13-338

NIH: BRAINS RFA (R01)

NIMH Biobehavioral Research Awards for Innovative New Scientists (NIMH BRAINS) (R01). RFA-MH-18-200.  The NIMH BRAINS program will focus on the research priorities and gap areas identified in the NIMH Strategic Plan and the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) project.

NIH: Research Program Award RFA (R35)

The purpose of the NINDS Research Program Award (RPA) is to provide longer-term support and increased flexibility to Program Directors (PDs) /Principal Investigators (PIs) whose outstanding records of research achievement demonstrate their ability to make major contributions to neuroscience.  RPAs will support the overall research programs of NINDS-funded investigators for up to 8 years, at a level commensurate with a PD/PI’s recent NINDS support RFA-NS-17-020.

NIH: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects RFA (R01)

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects - TargetedBCP (R01). RFA-NS-17-014. This FOA solicits applications for research projects that use innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior. The goal is to support projects that can realize a meaningful outcome within 5 years. Applications should address circuit function in the context of specific neural systems such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication or homeostasis. 

NIH: Confirmatory Efficacy Clinical Trials of Non-Pharmacological Interventions for Mental Disorders RFA (R01)

RFA-MH-17-614. The purpose of this FOA is to support confirmatory efficacy testing of non-pharmacological therapeutic and preventive interventions for mental disorders in adults and children through an experimental therapeutics approach. Interventions to be studied include, but are not limited to behavioral, cognitive, interpersonal, and device-based (both invasive/surgically implanted as well as noninvasive/transcranial) approaches, or a combination thereof.

NIH: Pre to Post-doc F99/K00 transition award

NIH Blueprint Diversity Specialized Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Advancement in Neuroscience (D-SPAN) Award (F99/K00). RFA-NS-17-009 .
