Solicitation of Assays for High Throughput Screening (HTS) to Discover Chemical Probes (R21)
Funding Number: PAR-12-059 Funding Type: PAR Release Date:December 13, 2011 Expiration Date:September 8, 2014 Web Site:http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-059.html
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages investigators to form collaborations with an established academic, nonprofit, or commercial high throughput screening (HTS) facility that has the requisite expertise and experience to implement HTS-ready assays for the discovery and development of small molecule chemical probes.
Through this FOA, NIH wishes to stimulate research in 1) discovery and development of novel, small molecules for their potential use in studying disease treatment relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes, and 2) discovery and/or validation of novel, biological targets that will inform studies of disease mechanisms. Emphasis will be placed on assays that provide new insight into important disease targets and processes.
