Description: Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease (NIDDK), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/ organizations that propose research relevant to the basic understanding and development of therapeutic interventions for currently screened conditions and high priority genetic conditions for which screening could be possible in the near future. In this FOA, a high priority condition is one for which the development of an efficacious therapy would make the condition amenable to newborn screening. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R01 funding mechanism and runs in parallel with two FOAs of identical scientific scope, PAR-10-231 and PAR-10-232 that encourage applications under the R03 and R21 mechanisms (FOA numbers/URLs). Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism, numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
