NINDS invites applications to develop genetic screens to enhance zebrafish research.  This announcement is made together with 12 other NIH components.

Encouraged are applications designed to exploit the power of the zebrafish as a vertebrate model for biomedical and behavioral research.  This announcement welcomes applications to develop new genetic screens that will advance the detection and characterization of genes, pathways, and phenotypes of interest in development and aging, organ formation, neural processes, behavior, sensory processes, physiological processes, and disease processes.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Lorette Javois, Center for Developmental Biology and Perinatal Medicine, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD); telephone: 301-496-5541; email: lj89j@nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this program announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-138.html.

Enhancing Zebrafish Research (Tools and Techniques)

NINDS invites applications to develop tools and techniques to enhance zebrafish research.  This announcement is made together with 13 other NIH components.

Encouraged are applications designed to exploit the power of the zebrafish as a vertebrate model for biomedical and behavioral research.  This announcement welcomes applications to develop new research tools or techniques that will advance the detection and characterization of genes, pathways, and phenotypes of interest in development and aging, organ formation, neural processes, behavior, sensory processes, physiological processes, and disease processes. 

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Rebekah S. Rasooly, Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK); telephone: 301-594-6007; email:  rr185i@nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this program announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-139.html.
