Research Initiative Details

This Notice encourages investigators to begin to consider applying for this revised FOA.

The revised FOA will encourage applications for biomarker validation trials or exploratory clinical trials of drugs, biologics, surgical therapies or devices that may contribute to the justification for and provide the data required to design a subsequent trial to further evaluate the intervention. Applications for drugs or biologics should provide compelling scientific evidence that the investigational agent proposed for study will reach/act upon the designated target or that its mechanism of action is such that it will be of benefit in ameliorating a specific aspect of the disease. Applications for devices may propose early or traditional feasibility studies. Diseases chosen for study should be based on the NINDS' strategic plan and clinical research interests.
