Historical (Inactive) Initiatives

Exploratory/Developmental Program for Translational Research in Muscular Dystrophy (R21)
PAR-06-043  Expiration Date:  9/2/2006

            The objective of this initiative is to encourage the development of lead compounds, assays, and models to facilitate the pursuit of a broad range of translational research strategies for therapeutic development in muscular dystrophy.

Nuclear Structure-Function Defect in the Pathogenesis of Muscular Dystrophy (R01)
RFA-NS-07-001  Expiration Date:  9/21/2006

            This initiative supports applications focused upon determination of the mechanisms of a subset of muscular dystrophies that may have their basis in nucleus structure-function defects. Applications are specifically solicited for studies of Emery-Dreifuss, facioscapulohumeral, limb girdle muscular dystrophy 1B, and oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophies.

Nuclear Structure-Function Defect in the Pathogenesis of Muscular Dystrophy (R21)
RFA-NS-07-002  Expiration Date:  9/21/2006

            This initiative supports applications focused upon determination of the mechanisms of a subset of muscular dystrophies that may have their basis in nucleus structure-function defects. Applications are specifically solicited for studies of Emery-Dreifuss, facioscapulohumeral, limb girdle muscular dystrophy 1B, and oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophies

Translational Research in Muscular Dystrophy (U01)
PAR-06-044 Expiration Date:  11/2/2008

            The objective of this initiative is to encourage the formation of cooperative agreements that will support milestone-driven projects focused on the identification and pre-clinical in vitro or animal testing of new therapeutics.

Innovative Therapies and Clinical Studies for Screenable Disorders (R21)
PAR-06-059 Expiration Date:  11/2/2006

            The objective of this initiative is to encourage developmental and high risk projects relevant to the basic understanding and development of therapeutic interventions for currently screened conditions and “high priority” genetic conditions for which screening could be possible in the near future.

Innovative Therapies and Clinical Studies for Screenable Disorders (R01)
PAR-06-060 Expiration Date:  11/2/2006

            The objective of this initiative is to encourage research projects relevant to the basic understanding and development of therapeutic interventions for currently screened conditions and “high priority” genetic conditions for which screening could be possible in the near future.

Innovative Therapies and Clinical Studies for Screenable Disorders (R03)
PAR-06-061 Expiration Date:  11/2/2006

            The objective of this initiative is to encourage small research projects relevant to the basic understanding and development of therapeutic interventions for currently screened conditions and “high priority” genetic conditions for which screening could be possible in the near future.

NIH Administrative Supplements for Senator Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Research Fellowships at Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Centers
NOT-AR-05-001 Expiration Date:  n/a

The objective of this initiative is to provide administrative supplements to support senior postdoctoral fellows or non-tenure tract investigators affiliated with the Senator Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Centers, and to encourage these Fellows to develop new, one- to two-year, independent, collaborative, exploratory projects focusing on muscular dystrophy (MD) research

Support for Muscular Dystrophy Workshops and Research Conferences
NOT-AR-05-008 Expiration Date:  n/a

This initiative provides an opportunity for the Directors of the Senator Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Centers (MDCRC) to apply for administrative supplements to their center grants to support small workshops or conferences focused on specific topics in muscular dystrophy research.
