Call for Proposals for Translational Research Projects on "Sensory Disorders"
Sensory disorders cover a broad range of often debilitating conditions and are major causes of morbidity and impaired quality of life. Impaired function of sensory systems severely affects the interaction of people with their social environment and may lead to self-isolation. In Europe, sense deficits rank highly on the burden of disease scale, leading to a serious economic and social burden due to long-term disability. Therefore, research on sensory disorders and its translation into diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes are fundamental.
To address this topic, the 'Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research' (NEURON) aims to coordinate research efforts and funding programmes across Europe and beyond to promote disease-related biomedical research on sensory disorders. NEURON particularly wishes to encourage multidisciplinary approaches and translational research proposals combining basic and clinical research that will ultimately help to develop new strategies for prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation. With this aim, 19 funding organisations from 16 countries launched a Joint Transnational Call for Research Proposals on ‘Sensory Disorders’.
