Submission by the Endocrine Society to Notice Number NOT-NS-22-076
NIH Request for Information (RFI) on Interdisciplinary Research Opportunities that Bridge Neuroscience and Environmental Health Science

"Our members report several common barriers to interdisciplinary research that impact productive collaborations across fields including:

  • A lack of funding opportunities that promote meaningful interaction and collaboration;
  • A failure by some grant review panels to appreciate the value of unfamiliar approaches and expertise; and
  • Insufficient direction and clarity for research teams about how interdisciplinary collaborations should relate to programmatic objectives."
