NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Xenopus

Funding Contact: NINDS Funding Coordinator
Funding Categories: Neurogenetics

Brief Description:

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the Trans-NIH Xenopus Working Group (TXWG) solicits investigator-initiated applications designed to exploit and enhance the power of Xenopus as a vertebrate model for biomedical research. Applications are welcome proposing to develop new tools or genetic or genomic resources of high priority to the Xenopus research community to advance the detection and characterization of genes, pathways, and phenotypes of interest in development, organogenesis, and in cell biological processes such as cell division, signaling and migration. In addition, applications will be welcomed that utilize recently developed genetic and genomic tools or resources to advance these same goals particularly when these projects employ tools that have not previously been made use of in Xenopus research.
