Summary

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is offering a grant opportunity titled "BRAIN Initiative: Data Archives for the BRAIN Initiative (R24 Clinical Trial Optional)". This grant aims to develop web-accessible data archives that capture, store, and curate data related to BRAIN Initiative activities. The data archives will work with the research community to incorporate tools for data analysis and visualization. The goal is to create a community resource data archive with appropriate standards and summary information that is widely available and accessible to the research community for furthering research. The grant does not include the creation of tools or standards. The opportunity is open to various eligible applicants, including Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, Faith-based or Community-based Organizations, and U.S. Territories or Possessions. The deadline for applications is June 24, 2026. For more information and to apply, visit the following link: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-MH-25-110.html.

Description

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) solicits applications to develop web-accessible data archives to capture, store, and curate data related to BRAIN Initiative activities. The data archives will work with the research community to incorporate tools that allow users to analyze and visualize the data, but the creation of such tools is not part of this NOFO. The data archives will use appropriate standards to describe the data, but the creation of such standards is not part of this NOFO. A goal of this program is to advance research by creating a community resource data archive with appropriate standards and summary information that is broadly available and accessible to the research community for furthering research.

BRAIN Initiative: Theories, Models and Methods for Analysis of Complex Data from the Brain (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health is offering a grant opportunity titled "BRAIN Initiative: Theories, Models and Methods for Analysis of Complex Data from the Brain (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)". This grant aims to solicit the development of theories, computational models, and analytical tools to derive understanding of brain function from complex neuroscience data. The proposed projects could develop tools to integrate existing theories or formulate new theories, conceptual frameworks to organize or fuse data to infer general principles of brain function, multiscale/multiphysics models to generate new testable hypotheses to design/drive future experiments, and new analytical methods to either support or refute a stated hypothesis about brain function. The tools developed under this grant are expected to be made widely available to the neuroscience research community for their use and modification. Investigative studies should be limited to model parameter estimation and/or validity testing of the tools being developed. The grant has a closing date of September 12, 2024, and an award ceiling of $250,000.

BRAIN Initiative: Exploratory Research Opportunities Using Invasive Neural Recording and Stimulating Technologies in the Human Brain (R61 Basic Experimental Studies with Humans Required)
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health is offering a grant opportunity titled "BRAIN Initiative: Exploratory Research Opportunities Using Invasive Neural Recording and Stimulating Technologies in the Human Brain (R61 Basic Experimental Studies with Humans Required)". This grant aims to support research projects that utilize invasive surgical procedures to record and stimulate intracranially within specific brain structures in humans. The goal is to address research questions in human neuroscience by assembling diverse, integrated, multi-disciplinary teams that can overcome the limitations of limited resources and patient availability. The research should focus on feasibility, proof-of-principle, and early-stage development to lay the groundwork for potential future research opportunities. Projects should maximize the opportunities provided by direct access to the brain through invasive surgical procedures and employ approaches guided by theoretical constructs and quantitative, mechanistic models. Awardees will join a consortium working group coordinated by the NIH to establish consensus standards of practice, collect and provide data for ancillary studies, and disseminate aggregated and standardized data to the scientific community. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching and is open to various eligible applicants. The deadline for application submission is September 19, 2025.
