Axonal Damage in Multiple Sclerosis: Strategies for Protection and Repair (R21): This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) with set-aside funds invites applications proposing clinical and translational research in multiple sclerosis (MS) that target the neurodegenerative aspect of this disease. Applicants are expected to propose activities that are directly focused on the development of neuroprotective and regenerative therapies for MS. Applications in basic neuroscience or glial biology are not covered under this FOA. Applications for clinical trials and interventional studies are directed to use the funding mechanisms and opportunities listed at http://www.ninds.nih.gov/funding/areas/clinical_trials/index.htm. -This funding opportunity will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) award mechanism but will run in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope that utilizes the traditional research project grant (R01) (PAS-05-002) mechanism. -The total amount to be awarded is up to $1,500,000 for the duration of this solicitation (3 years), in addition to funds available for applications sent in response to this funding opportunity announcement and a parallel announcement that uses the R01 mechanism that score within the NINDS payline. -Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. -Eligible organizations: For-profit or non-profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State and local governments; eligible agencies of the Federal government; domestic or foreign institutions/organizations; units of state or local tribal governments; and faith-based or community-based organizations. -Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PD/PIs): Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. -An R21 is not renewable. -Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each is scientifically distinct.
