As indicated above, the Department of Energy and the Fogarty

International Center have joined the Federal organizations supporting

the Human Brain Project.

For the information of those intending to apply in response to the

program announcement of The Human Brain Project (PA-93-068; NIH

GUIDE, Vol. 22, No. 13, April 2, 1993), it is important that the

special purpose of this program is considered when applications are

prepared.  The following excerpts from the program announcement

emphasize the need for each application to include both an

informatics research component and a neuroscience research component:

o  This initiative will incorporate cutting-edge informatics research

with neuroscience research in order to facilitate the integration of

neuroscience information and to promote communication and

collaboration across scientific disciplines and geographic locations.

o  The Human Brain Project encourages informatics research carried

out in concert with neuroscience research.

Since informatics solutions will likely include computer-based tools

such as databases, computer networks and associated software to

acquire, store, manage, analyze, integrate, and transmit neuroscience

information, it is probable that key personnel on successful

applications will include not only neuroscientists, but also those

engaged in research in computer science, information science,

engineering, mathematics, and/or statistics.

Applicants are reminded that applications considered to be

inappropriate for this program announcement will be assigned to the

appropriate agencies, institutes and centers according to their goals

and designs and in accordance with standard referral guidelines.

Applicants are notified that applications for P20 grant mechanisms

will not be accepted from organizations outside of the United States.
