NINDS to Fund Research Core Facilities, Including Genomics, With Up to $2.5M Each

NEW YORK, March 21 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke plans to fund a number of centralized resources and facilities at research institutions, including those offering genomic technologies, to support neuroscience research, the institute said on Friday.


Under the program, called "NINDS Institutional Center Core Grants to Support Neuroscience Research," NINDS will support core facilities shared by investigators with existing NINDS-funded research projects. Cores can receive up to $500,000 per year in direct costs for up to five years. NINDS did not specify the number of awards or total amount of funding it plans to disburse.


Eligible research cores include those providing assay development, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, microarrays, proteomics, and protein crystallography.
