NIH: Blueprint Training in Computational Neuroscience: From Biology to Model and Back Again (T90/R90)RFA-DA-16-009

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is an initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research (, a collaborative and coordinated effort across 13 Institutes and Centers that support research, research education, and research training with the goal of accelerating the pace of discovery in neuroscience research. This FOA will support integrated research education and research training programs that provide interdisciplinary training in experimental neuroscience and the theoretical and technological approaches of computational neuroscience at the undergraduate and predoctoral level.

Each application:

Must include a full-time undergraduate research training component that will combine coursework and hands-on laboratory research experience (R90);
Must include a full-time Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional predoctoral training component (T90);
May include a full-time non-NRSA institutional predoctoral training component (R90);
May include a short-term research education component (e.g., short course or workshop) that may include scientists at any stage of the career continuum as participants (R90).[Optional]

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by February 18, 2016. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NIH indicates that a letter of intent is NOT REQUIRED and a full proposal is due by March 18, 2016. For more information:
