The FOA currently reads:

Interests of Specific Institutes/Centers

National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
The National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is interested in CRP applications from NINDS Phase II funded applicants, provided they are within the NINDS mission.

NINDS will not accept applications that include clinical trials. A clinical trial is a prospective biomedical or behavioral research study of human subjects designed to answer specific questions about safety, tolerability, efficacy and/or effectiveness of pharmacologic, behavioral, biologic, surgical, or device (invasive or non-invasive) interventions. NINDS accepts and supports SBIR and STTR clinical trial applications through specific opportunities, which can be found on the NINDS SBIR webpage: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/funding/small-business/small_business_funding_opportunities.htm.  Other human subjects research can be submitted and NINDS may decline funding of any application that includes human subjects for programmatic or administrative reasons. SBIR applicants considering projects involving human subjects research are strongly encouraged to contact Scientific/Research staff.
