Genetic Susceptibility & Variability of Human Structural Birth Defects (R01)—upcoming deadline
Deadline: October 05, 2017
Amount: Budgets are limited to $499,999
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support innovative applications that will inform our understanding of structural birth defects through the use of animal models in conjunction with translational/clinical approaches. Applicants are encouraged to take advantage of advances in genetics, biochemistry, molecular, and developmental biology to identify specific genetic, epigenetic, environmental, or gene/environment interactions associated with the susceptibility to and variability of structural birth defects in human populations. Applicants funded through this FOA will join the NICHD Birth Defects Working Group and participate in annual meetings designed to provide a forum to discuss research progress, exchange ideas, share resources, and foster collaborations relevant to the goals of the NICHD's Birth Defects Initiative.
