ERA-NET NEURON JTC Call 2019
The NEURON Network has launched a joint transnational call for projects on 'Translational Biomarkers in Brain Disorders'.
The 'Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research' (NEURON) aims at coordinating research efforts and funding programmes of its partner countries in the field of disease-related neuroscience.
With the newly launched call, ERA-NET NEURON wishes to facilitate multinational, collaborative research projects that will address the unmet medical need for valid and reliable biomarkers for the diagnosis, patient stratification, prognosis, monitoring and prediction of treatment response and side effects in neurological and psychiatric diseases. The NEURON funding organisations particularly wish to promote multi-disciplinary work and translational research proposals that combine basic and clinical approaches. In the context of the present call, the inclusion of psychiatrists and/or neurologists in the postulating consortia is strongly encouraged, along with fundamental neuroscientists.
Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas:
- Fundamental research addressing the discovery and validation of biomarkers to be used as bio signatures of the pathophysiology associated with specific neurological and psychiatric diseases.
- Clinical research on clinically relevant biomarkers for the diagnosis, patient stratification, prognosis or monitoring or prediction of treatment response and side effects for specific neurological and psychiatric diseases.
Research on neurodegenerative disorders that are addressed by the EU Joint Programme - Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) is excluded from the present call.
Interested researchers are requested to contact the SNSF Administrative Offices to clarify submission requirements at least two weeks before submitting the pre-proposal.
For further details, please refer to the programme’s official website. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is 11 March 2019.
