NINDS encourages grant applications for research on primary immunodeficiency diseases. This announcement is made together with 3 other NIH components.
Primary immunodeficiency diseases result from inherited defects in the immune system. While these diseases are rare, as a group they may affect 1 to 2 percent of the population and can range in severity from mild to life-threatening. Medical research in this field can provide pivotal information on the development and function of the human immune system, benefiting millions of people affected with these diseases.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Ursula Utz, program director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-206.html.
