The purpose of the U.S.-India Brain Research Collaborative Partnerships (BRCP) Program (R21) is to support the establishment and enhancement of bilateral research collaborations between U.S. and Indian investigators in the field of neuroscience with an emphasis on understanding, treating and curing neurological, mental and addictive disorders. Specific areas of research may include, but are not limited to, studies of mechanisms underlying neurological, mental and addictive disorders and diseases, planning for population-based research and clinical trials, development of infrastructure for resource, tool and data sharing in addition to projects aimed at advancing global health research, particularly as it relates to the mission of the participating organizations.
The collaboration/partnership must involve a U.S. investigator (PD/PI) from an eligible U.S. institution and at least one Indian investigator (PD/PI) who is affiliated with an eligible Indian institution (as determined by the DBT). Applications supported by this program must involve integrated research projects that are enhanced by the inclusion of both U.S. and India components. Successful applications will include a well-presented justification for the bilateral collaboration, and detailed experimental approaches that will be completed by each component. Research applications should be submitted as a single application by the U.S. Institution to the NIH.
This program will use the R21 grant mechanism to support up to two years of exploratory/ developmental collaborative research. All applications should include separate budgets for the U.S. and Indian component, respectively.
In 2005, the U.S. and Indian government signed an Agreement on Science and Technology, which encourages cooperation between the U.S. and India to promote advances in each area.
Recognizing that research collaborations addressing neurological, mental and addictive disorders would be of mutual benefit to both nations, in 2008 the NINDS, NIMH and NIDA under the NIH, HHS of the U.S., established a “Joint Statement on Research Related to Mental Health, Neurology and Addictive Disorders” with DBT under the MoST of India.
This U.S.-India BRCP is designed to implement the Joint Statement by encouraging high quality bilateral research collaborations that could lead to new biomedical discoveries with the potential of reducing the neurological, mental and addictive disease burden borne by people in both nations and throughout the world.
Scope of Research
This R21 program will support innovative, exploratory/developmental collaborative research. The type of research activities encouraged by this program includes, but is not limited to:
Collaborative Research Partnerships
A critical feature of this FOA is the establishment of BRCPs among investigators and institutions in the U.S. and India. Applications may be derived from existing formal or informal collaborations with a history of interaction, or from new partnerships developed in response to this FOA. The BRCP must be based on a closely interactive partnership that maximizes the expertise of the research partners from both countries.
Health research is one of the top priorities of both U.S. and Indian governments. With the improvement of socio-economic conditions and increased global life expectancy, chronic non-communicable diseases, including neurological, mental and addictive disorders, impose more challenges to global health than ever before. The combination of high prevalence, early onset, persistence and impairment makes these disorders a major contributor to the total global disease burden. For example, neurological and neurovascular disorders are among the leading causes of mortality and disability worldwide. Some of these disorders might have distinct genetic backgrounds or special environmental factors (e.g., high prevalence of early-onset stroke in Indian populations). Similarly, unipolar depression is expected to become the leading cause of disability in the next decade. Depressive disorders often co-occur with neurological and substance use disorders. World-wide alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug abuse are responsible for considerable mortality and morbidity.
Comparative studies of brain disorders in the Asian Indian populations in the U.S. and in India might shed light on the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms underlying the disorders, and provide insight for prevention and treatment at a population-specific level. Collaborative research in computational neuroscience involving neuroscientists, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, statisticians, theoreticians and others is needed to advance our understanding of the nervous system and dynamic complex mechanisms underlying neurological and psychiatric brain disorders.
Research projects should address mechanistic, translational and clinical research of neurological, mental and addictive disorders.
Disease priority areas may include, but are not limited to:
Research approaches may include, but are not be limited to:
Research areas may include, but are not be limited to:

Applicants are required to follow the instructions for post-submission materials, as described in NOT-OD-10-115.
Only the review criteria described below will be considered in the review process. As part of the NIH mission, all applications submitted to the NIH in support of biomedical and behavioral research are evaluated for scientific and technical merit through the NIH peer review system.
The R21 exploratory/developmental grant supports investigation of novel scientific ideas or new model systems, tools, or technologies that have the potential for significant impact on biomedical or biobehavioral research. An R21 grant application need not have extensive background material or preliminary information. Accordingly, reviewers will focus their evaluation on the conceptual framework, the level of innovation, and the potential to significantly advance our knowledge or understanding. Appropriate justification for the proposed work can be provided through literature citations, data from other sources, or, when available, from investigator-generated data. Preliminary data are not required for R21 applications; however, they may be included if available.
Reviewers will provide an overall impact/priority score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).
Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.
Does the project address an important problem or a critical barrier to progress in the field? If the aims of the project are achieved, how will scientific knowledge, technical capability, and/or clinical practice be improved? How will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, technologies, treatments, services, or preventative interventions that drive this field? Will the project lead to new biomedical discoveries with the potential to reduce the neurological, mental and addictive disease burden borne by people in both nations or across the world?
Are the PD/PIs, collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project?
Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions? Are the concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions novel to one field of research or novel in a broad sense? Is a refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions proposed? Does the project make use of unusual expertise, resources, or environment at the Indian site?
Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses
well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project?
Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success
presented? If the project is in the early stages of development, will the
strategy establish feasibility and will particularly risky aspects be
If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed? Is the collaboration plan well-defined with clearly identified responsibilities for the U.S. and Indian collaborators? Is the management plan well-thought-out to build on and enhance existing research capacity/resource and to take advantage of the strengths of the U.S. and Indian collaborators?
Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements?
As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact/priority score, but will not give separate scores for these items.
Protections for Human Subjects
For research that involves human subjects but does
not involve one of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR
Part 46, the committee will evaluate the justification for involvement of human
subjects and the proposed protections from research risk relating to their
participation according to the following five review criteria: 1) risk to
subjects, 2) adequacy of protection against risks, 3) potential benefits to the
subjects and others, 4) importance of the knowledge to be gained, and 5) data
and safety monitoring for clinical trials.
For research that involves human subjects and meets the criteria for one or more of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate: 1) the justification for the exemption, 2) human subjects involvement and characteristics, and 3) sources of materials. For additional information on review of the Human Subjects section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.
Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children
When the proposed project involves clinical research, the committee will evaluate the proposed plans for inclusion of minorities and members of both genders, as well as the inclusion of children. For additional information on review of the Inclusion section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.
The committee will evaluate the involvement of live vertebrate animals as part of the scientific assessment according to the following five points: 1) proposed use of the animals, and species, strains, ages, sex, and numbers to be used; 2) justifications for the use of animals and for the appropriateness of the species and numbers proposed; 3) adequacy of veterinary care; 4) procedures for limiting discomfort, distress, pain and injury to that which is unavoidable in the conduct of scientifically sound research including the use of analgesic, anesthetic, and tranquilizing drugs and/or comfortable restraining devices; and 5) methods of euthanasia and reason for selection if not consistent with the AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia. For additional information on review of the Vertebrate Animals section, please refer to the Worksheet for Review of the Vertebrate Animal Section.
Reviewers will assess whether materials or procedures proposed are potentially hazardous to research personnel and/or the environment, and if needed, determine whether adequate protection is proposed.
As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will consider each of the following items, but will not give scores for these items, and should not consider them in providing an overall impact/priority score.
