SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for grant applications to develop novel technologies that will substantially reduce the cost of genomic DNA sequencing. Current technologies are able to produce the sequence of a mammalian-sized genome of the desired data quality for $5 to $10 million; the goal of this initiative is to reduce costs by at least two orders of magnitude. As some technologies that have potential to achieve this goal are already in or near the commercial market, applications to this FOA will need to show clear advantage over current and emerging technologies.
Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems, or to investigate key components of such systems. This program will use the NIH Phased Innovation (R21/R33) award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for grant applications to develop novel technologies that will substantially reduce the cost of genomic DNA sequencing. Current technologies are able to produce the sequence of a mammalian-sized genome of the desired data quality for $5 to $10 million; the goal of this initiative is to reduce costs by at least two orders of magnitude. As some technologies that have potential to achieve this goal are already in or near the commercial market, applications to this FOA will need to show clear advantage over current and emerging technologies.
Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems, or to investigate key components of such systems. This program will use the NIH Phased Innovation (R21/R33) award mechanism.

As some technologies that have potential to achieve this goal are already in or near the commercial market, applications to this FOA will need to show clear advantage over current and emerging technologies.
Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems, or to investigate key components of such systems. This program will use the NIH Phased Innovation (R21/R33) award mechanism.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsors offers support for research that incorporates an in-depth understanding of cultural appropriateness to HIV prevention research among young people in the United States or abroad. The overall purpose of the FOA is to develop theoretically grounded approaches to prevention of HIV infection and transmission in young people based upon a broad definition of culture. At minimum this involves knowledge of the norms, beliefs and values of youth in varied contexts, and an appreciation of culture as dynamic. This program will use the NIH Research Project (R01) award mechanism.

As an adjunct to these two goals, this Initiative also encourages the development of novel measures of pain in patients and animals that are non-invasive and objective and that permit a behavioral or functional assessment of pain. The primary outcome of this Initiative will be increased knowledge of the biological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, nociception, and analgesic therapies.

As some technologies that have potential to achieve this goal are already in or near the commercial market, applications to this FOA will need to show clear advantage over current and emerging technologies.
Applicants may propose to develop full-scale sequencing systems, or to investigate key components of such systems. This program will use the NIH Phased Innovation (R21/R33) award mechanism.

Basic and applied scientific applications with rigorous hypothesis-testing designs or for design-directed research are encouraged. The goal is to increase the number of useful technologies and tools available to scientists to facilitate their research in energy balance and health. Eventually these research tools should facilitate therapeutic advances and behavioral changes to address such problems as weight control and obesity.

SYNOPSIS:
The sponsor offers support for research on chronic orofacial pain disorders that will provide insights into the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying these conditions and the biological mechanisms underlying analgesic treatments of these disorders. Two major goals of this funding opportunity are: to stimulate research on patients with chronic painful disorders; and to stimulate the development and utilization of novel animal models of chronic orofacial pain conditions. As an adjunct to these two goals, this Initiative also encourages the development of novel measures of pain in patients and animals that are non-invasive and objective and that permit a behavioral or functional assessment of pain. The primary outcome of this Initiative will be increased knowledge of the biological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, nociception, and analgesic therapies. This program will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
