Since the BRAIN Initiative's launch in 2013, FAS Research Development has disseminated information via this newsletter about all of the funding opportunities related to the initiative. We send this newsletter to a targeted list of faculty, including  faculty affiliates  of the  Center for Brain Science  (CBS) and the  Mind Brain Behavior  (MBB) Interfaculty Initiative. This project is being carried out in collaboration with the Center for Brain Science.  Please feel free to forward this newsletter  to interested colleagues. All Harvard University faculty and administrators may subscribe here , and recipients may unsubscribe at any time. In addition, you may access the Science Division Funding Spotlight here. For an archive of past newsletters, or for information about additional Research Development support (finding funding, proposal development resources, etc.), please visit the Research Development website .  
Funding Opportunities
FAS/SEAS/OSP Deadline:  August 26, 2019
Sponsor Deadline for Full Proposals: September 3, 2019
Award Information: Application budgets are limited to $300,000 in direct costs in any project year. The maximum project period is 2 years. NIH intends to commit an estimated total of $4M to fund 6-12 awards.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), in support of the NIH Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, aims to support early stage development of entirely new and novel noninvasive human brain imaging technologies and methods that will lead to transformative advances in our understanding of the human brain. The FOA solicits unusually bold and potentially transformative approaches and supports small-scale, proof-of-concept development based on exceptionally innovative, original and/or unconventional concepts.
FAS/SEAS/OSP Deadline:  5 business days in advance of submission
Sponsor Deadlines for Full Proposals: September 3, 2019; September 3, 2020; September 3, 2021
Award Information:  Application budgets are not limited.  The maximum project period is 5 years. NIH  intends to commit an estimated total of $8M to fund 3-6 awards.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), in support of the NIH Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, aims to support full development of entirely new or next generation noninvasive human brain imaging tools and methods that will lead to transformative advances in our understanding of the human brain. The FOA seeks innovative applications that are ready for full-scale development of breakthrough technologies with the intention of delivering working tools. This FOA represents the second stage of the tool/technology development effort that started with  RFA-MH-14-217 and  RFA-MH-15-200
FAS/SEAS/OSP Deadline:  5 business days in advance of submission
Sponsor Deadlines for Full Proposals: September 3, 2019; February 14, 2020
Award Information:  Application budgets are not limited.  The maximum project period is 4 years. NIH  intends to commit an estimated total of $3M to fund approximately 5 awards.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications in two related but distinct areas. The first area is in the development and testing of novel tools and methods of neuromodulation that go beyond the existing forms of neural stimulation. The second distinct area that this FOA seeks to encourage is the optimization of existing stimulation methods.
