NINDS is inviting public input on the challenges and opportunities for supporting and enhancing research in fundamental neuroscience. The deadline for submission of input through a Request for Information is September 1.
The NIH BRAIN Initiative aims to revolutionize our understanding of the human brain by accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies. Cross-cutting technological innovations in turn stimulate fundamental neuroscience (FN) research, which ultimately inspire and drive therapeutic breakthroughs in the identification of treatments and cures for neurological disorders.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) one of the ten Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that make up the NIH BRAIN Initiative, hopes to similarly invest in the next generation of FN discoveries that yield rich dividends in support of the NINDS mission of treating neurological disorders. However, identifying the challenges and opportunities in FN research requires a community effort with voices heard from across the field of neuroscience. To accommodate as many voices as possible in this effort, NINDS has extended its deadline to September 1, 2022 for submissions to a request for information (RFI) on the challenges and opportunities in fundamental neuroscience research.
Your input is critical to the NINDS mission. Responses to this RFI will contribute to an ongoing effort at NINDS to solicit input from a wide range of perspectives and interested individuals who are invested in discovery-based neuroscience questions, and NINDS aims to transparently report those findings back to the community.
Please contribute to this effort by providing your insights using this RFI webform by September 1, and help NINDS expand its reach and inclusivity by inviting your colleagues to provide their input as well. To learn more, please visit the NINDS page on Fundamental Neuroscience Research.
