Part 2. Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Specific Areas of Interest
NIDCD
NIDCD seeks to conduct and support biomedical and behavioral research and research training in the normal and disordered processes of hearing, balance, taste, smell, voice, speech, and language.  The faculty and research interests of the NIDCD intramural research program can be found at http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/research/faculty/pages/alpha.aspx.  The intramural program uses a variety of tools of molecular and cellular biology, genetics, development, physiology, neuroimaging and systems biology to understand normal and disordered processes.  The research areas of focus for intramural/extramural collaborations under this FOA include hearing, balance, taste, voice, speech and language

NIMH
The mission of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for recovery, prevention, and cure.  To support its mission, NIMH has formulated a Strategic Plan with the following four overarching objectives:
1.  Promote discovery in the brain and behavioral sciences to fuel research on the causes of mental disorders:  http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/strategic-planning-reports/index.shtml#strategic-objective1
2.  Chart mental illness trajectories to determine when, where, and how to intervene: http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/strategic-planning-reports/index.shtml#strategic-objective2
3.  Develop new and better interventions that incorporate the diverse needs and circumstances of people with mental illnesses:  http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/strategic-planning-reports/index.shtml#strategic-objective3
4.  Strengthen the public health impact of NIMH-supported research:  http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/strategic-planning-reports/index.shtml#strategic-objective4

These four Strategic Objectives can be viewed as a cumulative progression that begins with promoting discovery in the brain and behavioral sciences in order to better understand the workings of the brain that can be translated to the study of mental disorders. In effect, our efforts to understand how changes in the brain can lead to mental illness will inform (and be informed by) fundamental research to understand the trajectories of mental illnesses across the lifespan and across diverse populations. By learning more about the trajectories by which mental illnesses develop, we hope to stimulate innovative psychosocial and biomedical approaches that can preempt or change these trajectories before mental illness occurs. Finally, we will retain a strong focus on public health impact and create better methods for ensuring that our research reaches all whose lives are affected by mental illness, as well as those who are dedicated to their care.

NINDS
NINDS intramural investigators conduct research at the NIH Clinical Center in the following areas: Neurogenetics, Movement Disorders, Neurosurgery, Neuroimmunology, and Neurovirology.  More details about specific investigators can be found at: http://irp.nih.gov/our-research/principal-investigators
