Description: Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) that propose to develop technologies and approaches (i.e., novel ways to use new or existing technologies) that will enable researchers to study the structure and/or function of brain localized G-protein coupled receptor proteins (GPCRs) and/or potentially identify novel selective and specific agonists/antagonists to these receptor subtypes, with a focus on mental health function or dysfunction, including HIV-related neurocognitive disorders. Technologies and approaches aimed at known receptor subtypes or orphan receptors would be of potential interest to NIMH. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the SBIR (R43/R44) award mechanisms for Phase I, Phase II, and Fast-Track applications. 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. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
