Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Characterization of Genomics of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Lines for AD/ADRD Research

Notice of Special Interest
Tuesday, March 23, 2021
Thursday, May 6, 2021
333
NOT-NS-21-041

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this one year administrative supplement program is to provide deep quality control and molecular phenotyping of ADRD iPSC lines. This program will fund whole genome sequencing (WGS) to fully characterize the genomic integrity of iPSC lines and compare against matched donor DNA WGS (ongoing through other support) for detecting mutation rates between the sources of DNA, source cell material (PBMC & fibroblasts). RNA-Seq and DNA methylation array analysis for the iPSC lines will provide gene expression profiles and methylation signatures to the respective parental cell type to assess the extent somatic memory exists and if this varies across different reprograming protocols. Additionally, we would utilize these data to determine whether somatic mutations occurring during reprogramming have functional consequences in gene expression patterns. This supplement will extend the scientific goals of the NINDS Human Cell and Data Repository (NHCDR) by providing insights into how genetic variants influence convergent ADRD disease pathways.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements for Collaborative Activities to Promote Sleep/Circadian Research in ADRD

Notice of Special Interest
Tuesday, March 16, 2021
Thursday, May 6, 2021
333
NOT-NS-21-040

Funding Opportunity Purpose

Between 40 and 70% of older adults suffer from sleep disturbances or disorders, which are especially prevalent among patients with Alzheimer's Disease and Alzheimers Disease Related Dementias (AD/ADRD), i.e., frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia, and multiple etiology dementias. The AD Research Summits specifically recommends to invest in understanding the integrative physiology of sleep and elucidating the short- and long-term consequences of disrupted and optimized sleep on brain aging and AD. Moreover, NIAs AD/ADRD Research Implementation Milestone 2.F plans to "create new research programs aimed at understanding the integrative physiology of circadian rhythms and sleep and its impact on brain aging and the risk of AD and AD-related dementias at multiple levels (epigenetic, gene expression, proteomic, neuronal, network, systems) to identify new targets and approaches for AD prevention." The purpose of this one-year administrative supplement program is to facilitate collaborative research to better understand the bi-directional relationship between chronic sleep disturbances/circadian disruption and AD/ADRD pathogenesis. This notice encourages eligible NINDS awardees in the AD/ADRD research community to apply for supplemental funds to establish new collaborations with sleep/circadian researchers for the advancement of research on the association between sleep disturbances/circadian disruption with ADRD. This initiative aims to investigate the potential of sleep/circadian-related treatment as a modifier of the development and progression of neurodegeneration. The proposed studies must be within the scope of the peer-reviewed activities specified within the NINDS parent award, and collaborators may not have a prior history of collaboration. Active awards with project end dates in FY 2022 or later are eligible. The award may not be entering or in a terminal no-cost extension in FY 2021.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Hyperacute MRI Imaging Studies to Understand How Brain Changes Affect AD/ADRD-Relevant Trajectories and Outcomes Post-Stroke

Notice of Special Interest: Impact of COVID-19 on Dementia Risk, Progression and Outcomes in ADRD Populations

Notice of Special Interest
Monday, March 15, 2021
Thursday, May 6, 2021
333
NOT-NS-21-037

Funding Opportunity Purpose

NINDS is interested in supplementing applications to conduct research on the effects of COVID-19 on the development of, or disease progression in, AD/ADRD. For example, anosmia is a risk factor for developing LBD and AD dementiaand anosmia is a common sequelae of COVID-19 infection, but it is unclear whether COVID-19 infected individuals with anosmia are also at greater risk for developing cognitive impairment and dementia. Similarly, although subjects with AD/ADRD are likely to worsen cognitively during COVID-19 infection, research is lacking as to whether they return to baseline after recovery from infection or whether there is accelerated progression of cognitive decline. Applicants requesting supplements to active NINDS-funded human subjects projects that will address these research questions, for example bytesting for COVID-19, anosmia, cognitive assessments, and biomarker assessments (neuroimaging, fluid-based), are encouraged under this opportunity.
