The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) encourages grant applications for research on the cause and treatment of sarcoidosis.  This announcement is made together with 8 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Sarcoidosis is a human immune-mediated disorder of granulomatous inflammation.  Originally the disorder was described through its skin manifestations, however, involvement of multiple organs and organ systems soon was recognized.  Although the clinical description and natural history of sarcoidosis are well recorded, many very basic things remain unknown about this problematic illness.

For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Michael Nunn, Program Director, Neural Environment Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-1431; e-mail: mn52e@nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-07-136.html.
