Limited Submission Announcement

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) encourages applications for the Training in Computational Neuroscience: From Biology to Model and Back Again (T90/R90) program. Part of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, a trans-NIH partnership to accelerate neuroscience research, this FOA will support integrated research education and research training programs that provide interdisciplinary training in basic neuroscience and the theoretical and technological approaches of computational neuroscience. Applications will be accepted for programs that propose only the undergraduate and predoctoral research training components, or for programs that also include a short-term research education component.

Scientific programs implemented under the Blueprint are intended to accomplish goals that strengthen the neuroscience enterprise and make it more effective. These goals include pooling of resources and expertise, establishing economies of scale, addressing large and complex challenges within neuroscience, and developing tools and infrastructure to serve the entire neuroscience community.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, December 3, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary, including 1) goals and objectives of the proposed program, 2) a description of the training activities, 3) evaluation plans, 4) how this program will strengthen computational neuroscience, and 5) the names of three MU personnel who would be qualified to serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.


Up to $500,000 per year (direct costs) for a period of up to five years.

Campus Deadline for Letter of Intent:

4:00 p.m., Friday, December 3, 2010

External Proposal Deadlines:
