This RFA intiative aims to stimulate multidisciplinary career development programs that will equip new MD and PhD (or equivalent) investigators with the knowledge and skills to apply pan-omics and integrated approaches to elucidating genomic and molecular bases of lung disease.
For the purpose of this initiative, lung disease -omic training goals include the "airway", ventilatory control mechanisms, chemosensitivity, and the consideration of genes and environmental factors that may compromise "airway" function during sleep.
Please note that the central focus of this initiative is to enhance multidisciplinary -omics research training. The K mechanism includes special applicant instructions (see FOA). Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to consider opportunities to propose "multidisciplinary" training that significantly impacts the global need of -Omics pulmonary research skills.
Applications for this RFA are due October 26, 2012. Click on the following link for the full text of the announcement: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HL-13-023.html.
