Grant amount: Up to US $275,000

Fields of work: Neurological Diseases & Disorders

Applicant type: Organizations

Funding uses: Non-clinical Biomedical

Location of project: Anywhere in the world

Location of residency: Anywhere in the world


NOTE: Applications are due by 5pm submitter's local time on the following dates:

  • Non-AIDS Applications:
    • New applications are due on February 16, June 16, and October 16 annually.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to support investigators who have interest and capability in the discovery of novel compounds for the prevention and treatment of nervous system disorders. Through this FOA NIH wishes to stimulate research in:

  • Identification, design, synthesis, and preclinical testing of compounds of candidate therapeutics,
  • Initial hit-to-lead chemistry to improve activity of compounds against the target of interest,
  • Later stage lead optimization to improve efficacy and pharmacokinetics, and
  • Initial drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic (DMPK).

Emphasis will be placed on projects that provide novel approaches to identify potential therapeutic agents.
