This RFA will prioritize bringing new investigators and early-career scientists into the field. There will be an additional emphasis on recruiting scientists from fields outside the core of neurodegeneration and rare disease, and will target work that addresses the biology of rare neurodegenerative diseases in a novel, innovative, interdisciplinary, and disease cross-cutting way.
