This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.
This opportunity encourages grant applications for the conduct of innovative, collaborative research projects between U.S. and low- and middle-income country (LMIC) scientists, on brain and other nervous system function and disorders throughout life, relevant to LMICs (including neurological, mental, behavioural, alcohol and substance use disorders and spanning the full range of science from basic to implementation research). Scientists in upper middle-income countries (UMICs) are also eligible to partner directly with scientists at other LMIC institutions with or without out a US partner. Income categories are defined by the World Bank.
The collaborative research programs are expected to contribute to the long-term goals of building and strengthening sustainable research capacity in LMICs to address nervous system development, function and impairment throughout life and to lead to diagnostics, prevention, treatment and implementation strategies. The proposed work will also contribute to developing a base for research networking and evidence-based policy beyond the specific research project.
