Description: Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by NCRR, National Institutes of Health, encourages research grant applications from institutions/ organizations that propose to develop, characterize or improve animal models for human disease or to improve diagnosis and control diseases of laboratory animals that may interfere with research. Models to be considered must be applicable to the research interests of two or more categorical NIH Institutes/Centers. Investigators considering applying are strongly encouraged to consult with NCRR program staff as early as possible to be advised whether this FOA is appropriate. Proposals to develop models that would not have broad applications, but would apply only to a specific disease or category of research, should be proposed to the appropriate categorical institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), e.g., models or model systems with primary focus on cancer or heart diseases should contact those categorical institutes at NIH to discuss alternative funding opportunities. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) award mechanism. 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.
