Description: Purpose. The purpose of this announcement is to describe areas of research of particular interest to the National Institute on Aging. This FOA seeks to promote research that develops, characterizes, refines and enhances model systems for aging research, including but not limited to animal models, cell lines, and informatics. This FOA issued by the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to: characterize aging at the physiological, biochemical and functional levels in existing animal models, including but not limited to animal models currently used in other scientific fields that have potential to benefit aging research; develop new animal models for aging research; develop unique cell lines for aging research; use comparative biology to identify models of highest priority for aging research; or develop informatics that enhance the utilization of animals for aging research. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism and runs in parallel with another FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-10-015, that solicits applications under the Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21) 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.
