Federal Funding agencies

BRAIN Initiative:  Theories, Models and Methods for Analysis of Complex Data from the Brain (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

This FOA solicits new theories, computational models, and statistical tools to derive understanding of brain function from complex neuroscience data.  Proposed tools could include the creation of new theories, ideas, and conceptual frameworks to organize/unify data and infer general principles of brain function; new computational models to develop testable hypotheses and design/drive experiments; and new mathematical and statistical methods to support or refute a stated hypothesis about brain function, and/or assist in detecting dynamical features and patterns in complex brain data.  It is expected that the tools developed under this FOA will be made widely available to the neuroscience research community for their use and modification.  Investigative studies should be limited to validity testing of the tools being developed.

Closing date: September 3, 2019  by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-EB-17-005


BRAIN Initiative: Secondary Analysis and Archiving of BRAIN Initiative Data (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages secondary analysis of the large amounts of existing data related to the BRAIN Initiative. The data do not need to be held in one of the funded BRAIN Initiative data archives, but the data must be held in a data archive that is readily accessible to the research community. Support will be provided for innovative analysis of relevant existing datasets using conventional or novel analytic methods, data science techniques, and machine learning approaches. Support may also be requested to prepare and submit existing data into any of the BRAIN Initiative data archives. Investigators should not underestimate the time and effort that may be necessary to curate or harmonize data.

The goal of this FOA is to promote studies that will significantly advance new discoveries and accelerate the pace of research of the BRAIN Initiative through harnessing the big data and machine learning opportunities. Awardees are expected to enhance the value of existing data, improve the overall data integration and analysis capability, and strengthen the statistical power and rigor and reproducibility of BRAIN Initiative related data.

Closing date: September 6, 2019 and June 11, 2020, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
