BRAIN Initiative-Related Research Education: Short Courses (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The overarching goal of this Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs in research areas relevant to the BRAIN Initiative.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects- TargetedBCP (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

(Reissue of RFA-NS-18-030) 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.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects - TargetedBCP (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This FOA solicits applications for research projects that seek to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior using innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches. The goal is to support adventurous projects that can realize a potentially transformative outcome within 5 years. Applications are expected to address circuit function in the context of specific behaviors or neural systems, such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication, or homeostasis.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Planning Projects - TargetedBCPP (R34 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

This R34 FOA solicits applications that offer a limited scope of aims and an approach that will establish feasibility, validity, or other technically qualifying results that, if successful, would support, enable, and/or lay the groundwork for a potential, subsequent Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects - TargetedBCP R01, as described in the companion FOA (RFA-NS-21-013).
