This is a change to the Program Announcement "Gene Discovery for
Complex Neurological and Neurobehavioral Disorders".  The text in the 
SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTIONS and SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR MODULAR GRANT 
APPLICATIONS sections has been replaced by the following:

SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTIONS:  All instructions for the PHS 398 (rev. 
5/2001) must be followed, with these exceptions:

o   Research Plan

For R21 applications only, items a – d of the Research Plan (Specific 
Aims, Background and Significance, Preliminary Studies, and Research 
Design and Methods) may not exceed a total of 15 pages.  No preliminary 
data is required for R21 proposals, but may be included if it is 
available.  Please note that a Progress Report is not needed for R21 
awards; competing continuation applications for an 
exploratory/developmental grant will not be accepted.

Appendix.  Use the instructions for the appendix detailed in the PHS 
398 except that for R21 applications, no more than 5 manuscripts, 
previously accepted for publication, may be included.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR MODULAR GRANT APPLICATIONS:  Applications 
requesting up to $250,000 per year in direct costs must be submitted in 
the modular grant format.  The modular grant format simplifies the 
preparation of the budget in these applications by limiting the level 
of budgetary detail.  Applicants request direct costs in $25,000 
modules.  Section C of the research grant application instructions for 
the PHS 398 (rev. 5/2001) at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html includes step-
by-step guidance for preparing modular grants.  Additional information 
on modular grants is available at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/modular/modular.htm.
