Funding Opportunity Purpose

This funding opportunity announcement is designed to support biomedical data repositories. Biomedical data repositories under this announcement should have the primary function to ingest, archive, preserve, manage, distribute, and make accessible the data related to a particular system or systems. Support for data curation must be limited to that which improves the efficiency and accessibility of data ingestion, management, and use and reuse by the user communities. Support for software and tool development must be limited to that which provides essential functions or significantly increases the efficiency of operation of the repository. Applications that have a significant focus on software and tool development are not appropriate for this activity.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This funding opportunity announcement is designed to support biomedical knowledgebases. Biomedical knowledgebases under this announcement should have the primary function to extract, accumulate, organize, annotate, and link growing bodies of information related to core datasets. Support for data curation should include efficient and effective methods of curation that scale to the needs of community and include semi-automated methods. Support for software and tool development must be limited to that which provides essential functions or significantly increases the efficiency of operation of the knowledgebase. Applications that have a significant focus on software and tool development are not appropriate for this activity.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The FOA invites applications that will apply computational approaches to the integration and analysis of clinical, genomic and transcriptomic data from the Accelerating Medicine Partnership in Parkinsons disease (AMP PD) to advance the identification of algorithms, biomarkers, and disease pathways related to the diagnosis, prognosis and progression of Parkinsons disease. Development of tools and workflows for data visualization and integration across data modalities and their application to AMP PD data are also supported.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This FOA invites applications for Centers for Collaborative Research in Fragile X and FMR1-Associated Conditions (hereafter termed "Fragile X Centers"). Successful Centers will be composed of multidisciplinary teams of investigators collaborating to address specific research priorities identified in the Strategic Plan.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications directed toward developing next-generation human cell-derived microphysiological systems (MPS) and related assays that replicate complex nervous system architectures and physiology with improved fidelity over current capabilities. Supported projects will be expected to enable future studies of complex nervous system development, function and aging in healthy and disease states.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

A central goal of the BRAIN Initiative is to develop new and improved technologies suitable for recording from as well as controlling specified cell types and circuits to modulate and understand function in the central nervous system. In order to accomplish these goals, further information is needed to understand the function of current technologies used for recording or stimulating the nervous system. This RFA accepts grant applications in two related but distinct areas. The first is to systematically characterize, model, and validate the membrane, cellular, circuit, and adaptive-biological responses of neuronal and non-neuronal cells to various types of stimulation technologies. The second is to understand the biological and bioinformatic content of signals recorded from neuronal and non-neuronal cells and circuits. Development of new technologies, therapies and disease models, are outside the scope of this FOA. Activities related to enabling the simultaneous use of multiple recording or stimulation technologies are allowed.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

Despite established associations between white matter lesions and cognitive impairment including dementia, the volume, anatomical location, and other key cellular and molecular characteristics of white matter lesions that are both necessary and sufficient are unknown, as are the comorbid clinical factors that may modify (including protect from) these effects. Therefore, this initiative will support one large prospective clinical research study in the U.S. studying individuals with white matter lesions at risk for cognitive decline to determine the magnitude and anatomical locations that are both necessary and sufficient to cause cognitive impairment and dementia. The study will include health disparities populations, and will examine additional clinical factors and comorbidities that may be effect modifiers of the relationship between white matter lesions and cognitive impairment, including dementia. Clinical trial-ready VCID biomarkers should be utilized, further developed, and/or subject to implementation research in this study. Secondary goals include: identifying clinical and mechanistic targets for future VCID interventional trials; determining interrelationships (cross-sectional and longitudinal) among white matter lesions, cerebro- and cardio-vascular disease and risk factors including dementia-relevant genes. Applicants are encouraged, when scientifically advantageous, to utilize existing resources for VCID and stroke research, e.g. MarkVCID, StrokeNet, Alzheimers Centers, and large NIH funded prospective cohort studies (e.g. Framingham, ARIC, CHS, NOMAS, etc.) as well as other dementia resources.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites research applications to elucidate mechanisms of neuroimmune dysfunction caused by HIV-1 and to detect persistent/latent/reactivated HIV using novel imaging/neuroimaging approaches in the central nervous system from anti-retroviral therapy (ART) suppressed individuals. Applications testing a fully conceptualized and hypothesis-based solid premise founded with adequate preliminary data should consider applying to the companion R21 announcement, RFA MH-20-331 . Basic and preclinical research in domestic and international settings are of interest. Multidisciplinary research teams and collaborative alliances are encouraged but not required.

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Exploratory/Developmental Phased Innovation (R61/R33) grant applications to support development of clinical trials to treat critical and co-occurring health conditions in individuals with Down syndrome. The proposed research aims should be milestone-driven. The total project period for an application submitted in response to this FOA may not exceed five years. This FOA provides support for up to two years (R61 phase) for preliminary/developmental/planning studies, followed by possible transition of up to four years of expanded clinical trial support (R33), although the total duration of the award may not exceed five years. This FOA requires measurable R61 milestones.
