NINDS Institutional Center Core Grants to Support Neuroscience Research
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); National Institutes of
Health (NIH); National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Pre-proposal Due to OGRD: 11/24/2008
Proposal due to Agency: 01/25/2009
Agency Deadline Note:
Non-required letters of intent are due 30 days before the standard
receipt dates. This opportunity will expire on May 8, 2011. Internal
coordination required. NINDS will not consider more than one application
simultaneously from an applicant organization.
Next Deadline (est):
This FOA will use the NIH Center Core Grants (P30) award mechanism.
NINDS has not specified a maximum number of awards or a maximum total
amount of funding that will be awarded under this FOA. An applicant
organization is eligible for a maximum of one NINDS Center Core Grant.
Applicants may request up to $500,000 per year in direct costs for a
period not to exceed five years.\\Cost sharing is not required to be
eligible for this program. However, it is strongly encouraged for
applicant organizations to make appropriate and needed commitments to
the center in order to maximize the effectiveness and utility of the
Applications may be submitted by domestic for-profit or nonprofit
organizations and public or private institutions, such as universities,
colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of state and local
governments; eligible agencies of the federal government; and
faith-based or community-based organizations. Foreign institutions are
not eligible for support under the P30 mechanism. Institutions eligible
for NINDS Center Core Grants will have, on the date of application
submission, at least five qualifying research projects, all of which
will use the center; the usage level proposed for the qualifying
projects must be sufficient to justify the size and scope of the center
requested. Qualifying research projects include only NINDS-funded
Research Projects (R01), Research Project Cooperative Agreements (U01),
Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Awards (R37), Program Project
(P01), Specialized Center (P50), and Specialized Center Cooperative
Agreements (U54) awards provided that there is no overlap between the
requested center and existing cores associated with the P01, P50, or U54
awards. Each P01, P50, or U54 award will count as one qualifying
research project. Up to two of the qualifying NINDS-funded projects can
be held by institutions other than the applicant organization, provided
that the NINDS-funded investigators at those institutions will have
access to the core facilities through consortium agreements established
with the applicant organization and included in the application budget.
There should be no overlap between the requested center core facilities
and other pre-existing core facilities at the institutions holding the
qualifying projects, and existing facilities should be described in the
"Resources" section of the application.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
invites applications for Center Core Grants to support neuroscience
research. The purpose of this program is to advance the NINDS mission to
promote understanding and treatment of neurological disorders by
providing core research facilities that are not otherwise available.
This support, by providing more accessible resources, is expected to
assure a greater productivity than would be possible from the separate
projects. \\NINDS Center Core Grants will support centralized resources
and facilities shared by investigators with existing NINDS-funded
research projects. Each center will be composed of one or more research
cores, each of which will enrich the effectiveness of ongoing research,
and promote new research directions. A Center Core Grant will support
individual neuroscience research projects by providing necessary
resources and performing required services that would be difficult or
impractical to provide in individual labs. Center Core Grants will
foster a cooperative and interactive research environment through which
multidisciplinary approaches to neuroscience problems and joint research
efforts will be stimulated. The applicant organization is encouraged to
consider a plan to co-fund the center, in order to maximize its utility
and effectiveness.\\The NINDS Center Core Grants program is intended to
support research infrastructure cores. The cores will support the
generation of research results for center users, but will not include
independent research project or technology development components. The
program will not provide support for cores that support clinical trials,
provide patients services, or conduct pilot projects.\\The following
areas may be appropriate for individual cores within a NINDS center.
This list is not all-inclusive; applicants may propose other types of
research cores:\1. Animal models (general, phenotyping, transgenic)\2.
Animal surgery\3. Assay development\4. Cell culture\5. Cell
repository\6. Computer/IT\7. DNA sequencing\8. Drug screening\9.
Electrophysiology\10. Flow cytommetry\11. Gene vector development and
production\12. Histochemistry (immunocytochemistry, autoradiography, in
situ hybridization)\13. Imaging (MRI, PET, MEG, NIRS)\14.
Informatics\15. Machine shop\16. Mass spectrometry\17. Microarrays\18.
Microscopy (light, electron, confocal, laser capture)\19. Molecular
biology\20. Monoclonal antibody production\21. Neuropathology (animal
and human)\22. Neurotoxicology\23. NMR\24. Protein analysis
(proteomics)\25. Protein crystallography/X-ray structure
determination\26. Radiochemistry (PET, tracers)\27. Statistics/data
