Research on the Ethical Implications of Advancements in Neurotechnology and Brain Science

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), in support of the NIH Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, is one of several FOAs aimed at supporting transformative discoveries that will lead to breakthroughs in understanding human brain function. Guided by the long-term scientific plan, “BRAIN 2025: A Scientific Vision,” this FOA specifically seeks to support efforts addressing core ethical issues associated with research focused on the human brain and resulting from emerging technologies and advancements in research and development supported by The BRAIN Initiative®. The hope is that efforts supported under this FOA might be both complimentary and integrative with the transformative, breakthrough discoveries being supported through The BRAIN Initiative®.
