The goal of this Program Announcement with set-aside funds (PAS) is to
invite applications for studying the integration of neurobiological and
cerebrovascular mechanisms in the adult, aged and pediatric brain in
health and disease. This PAS encourages studies focused on improving our
understanding of the dynamic interactions within the neurovascular unit
(NVU), a construct consisting of brain microvascular endothelium, glia,
neurons and the extracellular matrix that maintains spatial relations
among them. Knowledge of these interactions has the potential to
stimulate new strategies for basic, translational and clinical research in
many neurological disorders, including stroke, vascular dementia, and
intracerebral hemorrhage. Among the challenges to be addressed are:
generate new hypotheses and conduct exploratory work on microvesselneuron
communication; increase our knowledge about cell-cell signaling and how
insults to the endothelium affect parenchymal cell damage, which applies
not only to stroke, but may also contribute to understanding neurological
disorders in which vascular changes are observed; and, elucidate
mechanisms by which neurons communicate with blood vessels through
interactions with non-neuronal cells in the microenvironment including
endothelium, pericytes, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and microglia.
