National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The Neural Prosthesis Program of the National Institute of

Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of

Health, is seeking a contract for the development of biomaterials for

the long-term insulation of implantable stimulating and recording

microelectrodes and interconnect cables.  In-vitro and in-vivo

studies will be conducted.  Insulating biomaterials, intended to

protect implanted probes and cables over the lifetime of an implant

recipient, will be developed and tested.  The focus of the work shall

be on finding and characterizing insulating biomaterials.  A research

team with expertise in materials science, biomaterials,

microelectronic packaging, and animal testing will be required to

successfully conduct this research.  It is anticipated that one (1)

award will be made for a period of three (3) years in September 1993.


This notice is not the Request for Proposals (RFP).  To receive a
