National Institute Of Neurological Disorders And Stroke

The United States Congress created the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in 1950. NINDS is one of the more than two dozen research institutes and centers that comprise the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NINDS has multiple initiatives to support its mission of reducing the burden of neurological disease. The Institute supports and conducts basic, translational, and clinical research on neurological disorders as well as fostering the training of investigators in the basic and clinical neurosciences. NINDS provides grants-in-aid to public and private institutions and individuals and operates a program of contracts for the funding of research and research support efforts. The Institute also offers individual and institutional fellowships to increase scientific expertise in neurological fields. While most of NINDS’s research is conducted by extramural investigators, the Institute also has a diversified program of intramural and collaborative research in its own laboratories, branches, and clinics. For more information about the research funded and supported by the NINDS, visit or contact the Institute’s Brain Resources and Information Network (BRAIN) at: BRAIN P.O. Box 5801 Bethesda, Maryland 20824 (800) 352-9424
