NIH Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral FunctionA Blueprint-Funded ResourceFact Sheet: pdf html
FNIH Biomarkers Consortium
- There is little uniformity among measures used to assess quality of life in patients with neurological disease, making it
difficult to compare or compile data across studies.
- The toolbox will be a comprehensive set of measures for assessing cognition, emotion, sensation and motor functions, with
an emphasis on those measures useful for studying epidemiology, prevention and long-term intervention.
- A partnership among the Foundation for NIH (FNIH), government agencies and the private sector, formed to accelerate the development
of biomarkers -- non-symptomatic changes in the body that indicate a disease process or risk of disease.
- Researchers seeking assistance with biomarker development for brain disorders may apply to the Consortium's Neuroscience Steering Committee for financial and technical support.
