National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) announces a
program of up to $10 million in Fiscal Year 1999 to enhance infrastructure in
support of research projects currently funded by the NINDS.  Principal
Investigators on projects that received NINDS funding in Fiscal Year 1998
(competing or non-competing) are invited to submit a one-page application
describing their need for one-time expenses that would significantly enhance
their ability to achieve the specific aims of the funded project while not
expanding the project. 

Amount:  Supplements will be made in increments of $25,000 total costs.  For
regular research grants (R01 and R29) the maximum is $50,000.  For program
project (P01) and research center grants (P50) the maximum is $100,000.  Up to
four principal investigators from the same institution may collectively apply for
a major piece of equipment that would serve the aims of each of their projects,
up to a combined total of $200,000.

Allowable costs:  This program is intended primarily to support equipment that
could not be purchased because of prior budgetary constraints, but requests for
other types of non-recurring infrastructure support that will enhance the ongoing
NINDS-funded research will be considered.  When applicable, proposed equipment
must be Y2K (Year 2000) compliant.  Excluded are salaries, training costs,
alterations and renovation, travel, and recurring supplies.

How to apply:   Send to the address below, a one page letter (counter-signed by
institutional official) describing the requested item(s), cost, why it is needed,
and relation to specific aims.  Attach a copy of the specific aims from the most
recent grant application funded by the NINDS and an updated biosketch from the
PHS Form 398 (up to two pages).  This biosketch should be for the PI and/or Co-PI
of the R01 or relevant subproject(s) for P01s and P50s.

Submit two copies of the entire application package to:

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Division of Extramural Activities
7550 Wisconsin Avenue, Room 1016
Bethesda, MD  20892

Review and funding decisions:  Applications will be reviewed administratively by
NINDS program and grants management staff, who will make recommendations to the
senior leadership of the Institute on the basis of excellence of the research,
as reflected in progress toward the specific aims of the grant, and demonstrated
need for the supplement.

Receipt date:  January 15, 1999.
