BRAIN Funding Opportunities:
Circuits and Behavior
Special Presentation by
Karen K. David, PhD
BRAIN Initiative Team for Integrative and Quantitative Approaches
Karen David (BRAIN/NINDS Program Director) will be describing the various Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) under the “Integrated Approaches” portfolio which she co-manages with Jim Gnadt (NINDS/BRAIN Team Co-lead). The different funding mechanisms (R34, R01, U01, U19) allow for the tackling of scientific questions at different scales and of various complexities by balancing support for individual-lab science and team-science approaches. These FOAs share an overall goal of understanding behavior (of an organism or a neural system) at the level of circuits. Specifically, these FOAs support research in functional systems neuroscience with the goal of producing a dynamic picture of the brain that will show how individual cells and complex neural circuits support processes and function, such as sensation, perception, attention, communication, and homeostasis, to name a few. In this talk, the following questions will also be addressed:
How are the BRAIN funding opportunities different from the parent NIH mechanisms?
How is BRAIN governance and funding processes different from that of the various NIH Institutes?
What's next for the second half of the BRAIN Initiative?
