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?
