The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) request applications for support of microarray research centers.
The objective of this request for applications (RFA) is to establish up to 3 microarray research centers that will support gene expression profiling in the nervous system through the application of microarray technologies, and will function as a consortium, providing reagents, services, and training to the neuroscience community on a fee-for-service basis.
These centers will provide services to NINDS-funded and NIMH-funded investigators to support microarray analyses on the nervous system. The centers may produce standard, nervous system-specific arrays designed for general use, or custom arrays suited to the needs of smaller groups of investigators. The centers will run array experiments, including hybridization reactions, array reading, and data analyses, and will also advise and train the neuroscience community on the effective use of microarray experimental techniques in an effort to disseminate expertise throughout the neuroscience community.
