NIH and NSF Renew and Expand Computational Neuroscience Program

NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation announced yesterday a joint initiative among five NSF directorates and nine NIH Institutes to fund the study of neuroscience using bioinformatics approaches.

 

The new initiative, entitled Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience, replaces a two-year-old similar initiative - extending the mandate for another three years and adding several more institutes' participation.

 

The initiative provides for up to $250,000 from the NIH or $500,000 from the NSF per year with durations of three to five years per project.
