NIH Funding Opportunity: Collaborative Research in Fragile X and FMR1-Associated Conditions
Jan 23, 2020
Origin: NIH Announcement
In recognition of the rapidly evolving landscape of FMR1-associated research, NIH recently published a new Strategic Plan for Research on FMR1-Associated Conditions. This Strategic Plan, which was developed in collaboration with many members of the Fragile X community, articulates NIH’s current research priorities, which are directed toward an overarching vision of accelerating the development of effective interventions to prevent or treat FMR1-associated conditions. Successful Fragile X Centers will be composed of multidisciplinary teams of basic, translational and clinical investigators collaborating to address complex, difficult-to-solve problems within specific research priorities identified in the Strategic Plan.
Application Period March 3-April 3, 2020.
An informational webinar is planned in mid-late February for anyone potentially interested in applying under this RFA.
