New Funding Opportunity Announcements (application due date December 13, 2018): RFA-NS-18-034 Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN) to Support Translational Studies for Acute Neuroprotection - Coordinating Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

by Regina Sester | Aug 31, 2018
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by NINDS is to invite applications for the Coordinating Center (CC) for the NIH Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN). SPAN will facilitate testing of up to 6 promising neuroprotective drugs or interventions to be given prior to or at the time of reperfusion in experimental models of ischemic stroke (e.g., transient middle cerebral artery occlusion). The CC will work with the awarded network sites (RFA-NS-18-033) and will provide centralized administrative oversight and coordination of all aspects of the network.
If successful, this network will accelerate the identification of the most promising neuroprotective therapies for future pivotal clinical trials and span the gap between preclinical and clinical testing, in a cost-and time-effective fashion.
