Funding Opportunities

The following is a newly released NCI research funding opportunity:

Tools for Zebrafish Research
PAR-05-080
Letter of Intent Receipt Dates: Aug. 19, 2005, Aug. 19, 2006, Aug. 19, 2007

Application Receipt Dates: Sept. 19, 2005, Sept. 19, 2006, Sept. 19, 2007

This is a reissue of PAR-02-142, which was issued because it was clear that there was a critical need for non-hypothesis driven, tool development proposals to be reviewed as a group, within a single framework. It focused on identifying additional mutants and developing new genetic tools in zebrafish. The objective is to continue to broaden the range, power, and utility of tools for biomedical and behavioral research using zebrafish, and to develop genetic and genomic resources of high priority to the zebrafish community. NCI's interest in this initiative is the study of zebrafish models to identify and place genes in functional pathways that affect growth and development.

This funding opportunity will use the NIH Individual Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism(s).

The NIH Roadmap for Medical Research Funding provides a framework of the priorities NIH must address to optimize its research portfolio. It identifies the most compelling opportunities in three main areas: new pathways to discovery, research teams of the future, and re-engineering the clinical research enterprise. Newly released Roadmap funding opportunities are listed below. For information on additional Roadmap funding opportunities, go to http://nihroadmap.nih.gov.
