The collaborative research programs are expected to contribute to the long-term goal of building sustainable research capacity in developing countries to address neurological/ neurodevelopmental (including sensory, motor, cognitive and behavioral) function and impairment throughout life. - R21 planning grants will be accepted from all eligible applicants (please refer to Section III Eligibility Information). - R01 grant applications under this PA may ONLY be submitted by Brain Disorders in the Developing World R21 planning grant awardees from either this program announcement or from RFA-TW-03-007, Brain Disorders in the Developing World: Research Across the Life-Span, which was released November 7, 2002 for competition in 2003 ( - New applicants to the Brain Disorders in the Developing World: Research Across the Lifespan initiative (including those who applied under RFA TW-03- 007 or the current PA but were unsuccessful) may submit applications for two-year planning/development grants using the R21 grant mechanism. The R21 grant provides support to initiate and carry out preliminary studies and training, and to organize, plan, prepare, and assemble an application for a more comprehensive R01 grant. - The R01 application must build on, and further develop, the pilot research, resources and collaborations developed in the R21 and must be relevant to the interests, stated in this PA, of one of the participating organizations or NIH ICs, other than FIC. - Budget: R21 applicants may request up to $100,000 per year, direct costs, for up to 2 years.
