  About the NIH Neuroscience Blueprint

The Blueprint is a framework to enhance cooperative activities among fifteen NIH Institutes and Centers that support research on the nervous system. By pooling resources and expertise, the Blueprint can take advantage of economies of scale, confront challenges too large for any single Institute or Center, and develop research tools and infrastructure that will serve the entire neuroscience community. "Best practices" developed at a single Institute or Center will be implemented more widely; planning will be coordinated at the early concept stage; resources established by one Institute or Center may be opened to neuroscientists supported by others; and new working groups can focus on diseases and cross-cutting scientific issues for which such groups do not already exist.
