Description: Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institutes of Health, encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations studying the role of the central nervous system in the processing of taste information and the perception of taste quality. The purpose of this FOA is to foster basic and clinical research on the central mechanisms underlying the perception of taste quality. A broad range of experimental approaches is encouraged. The NIDCD encourages applications from investigators who are conducting research outside the field of gustation and who are using methodological approaches that have not been typically applied to but which would greatly promote scientific progress within the field. The NIDCD also encourages applications from new investigators in the early stages of establishing an independent research program. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
