Neuroinformatics: Human Brain Project

Status of the Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project (HBP) was launched in 1993 to develop and support a new science: neuroinformatics. Since then, HBP-funded investigators have made many seminal contributions to biomedical informatics. And, the HBP and its investigators have played a significant role in shaping the current landscape of informatics initiatives at the NIH.

The HBP has been remarkably successful in establishing the field of neuroinformatics research, and it is now time to consider new ways in which this field can best articulate with major informatics initiatives and best advance research and development of informatics tools and resources for neuroscience. Such considerations have already begun, and will continue over several months.

In light of this, the current program announcements (PARs) soliciting applications for the HBP will not be reissued. Thus, the last solicited receipt date for HBP applications was September 22, 2005.

If you have a currently funded grant or application that has been submitted or reviewed, you should contact your Program Officer for further information. The relevant notice is available from the NIH Guide.
