NIH: Centers for Common Disease Genomics (UM1) RFA-HG-015-001
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) seeks to fund a collaborative large-scale genome sequencing effort to comprehensively identify rare risk and protective variants contributing to multiple common disease phenotypes. This initiative will explore a range of diseases with the ultimate goal of undertaking variant discovery for enough different examples of disease architectures and study designs to better understand the general principles of genomic architecture underlying common, complex inherited diseases; understand how best to design rare variant studies for common disease; and develop resources, informatics tools, and innovative approaches and technologies for multiple disease research communities and the wider biomedical research community.
USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 2, 2015. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
NIH indicates that a letter of intent is due on March 7, 2015 and a full proposal is due by April 7, 2015. For more information: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HG-15-001.html#_3._Additional_Information
