The Research Plan section of your NIH grant is one of the most important components of your application. Within the section you must discuss the significance, innovation, and approach of your proposed research. The study session will score your application based on these criteria so it is imperative for you to communicate your plan comprehensively and clearly. This chart is an excellent tool for you to use to map out your research plan.

The goal of the project is to provide the Neuroscience Community with mouse strains that are suitable for the tissue and cell-type-specific perturbation of gene function in the nervous system. The NIH Neuroscience Blueprint has established three centers in the USA for the generation of genetically modified mice expressing CRE recombinases in the nervous system on the C57BL6/J genetic background: Cold Spring Harbor Lab, Scripps Research Institute, and Baylor College of Medicine.
