    Biography
      Dr. Jim Gnadt, NINDS Program Director in Systems and Computational Neuroscience and Team Lead for the NIH BRAIN Integrative and Quantitative Approaches, has worked in systems and cognitive neuroscience and neuroengineering for over 35 years. He has held his current position at NINDS, the neurology institute of NIH, since 2008, and has been a principal in the NIH BRAIN Initiative since its inception in 2014 where he co-leads the team of trans-NIH Program Directors in the 'understanding circuits' part of the initiative. Dr. Gnadt manages a diverse NIH funding portfolio in systems and computational neuroscience, including experimental programs in integrated, team-science approaches and in intracranial opportunities for investigative human neuroscience. In collaboration with NIH review offices, Dr. Gnadt has developed tools to understand the precision of NIH review scoring and methods to convey its margins of uncertainty.
      Prior to taking the position at NINDS, Dr. Gnadt was an NIH-funded investigator since 1984, working on sleep physiology related to narcolepsy, quantitative neurophysiologic approaches in cognitive neuroscience, systems engineering to understand neural circuit dynamics, and neurological etiologies of eye behavior pathologies. Facilitating translation of curiosity-driven, fundamental biology into human impacts remains the focus of Dr. Gnadt's efforts at the NIH.
