RFA on Mouse Mutagenesis and Phenotyping: Developmental Defects

The NIH requests applications to establish a facility for large-scale mutagenesis and phenotyping of developmental defects in the mouse. The characterized mutants will be distributed to the scientific community and are expected to serve as a valuable resource for the study of gene function, particularly as it relates to development. This Request For Applications (RFA) is co-sponsored by seven Institutes (NICHD, NIGMS, NIA, NIAMS, NIDCR, NIDDK, and NHLBI). Collectively, they will provide up to $2.8 million (total cost).

A public briefing will be held for RFA HD-99-007 and a companion RFA MH-99-007 (Mouse Mutagenesis and Phenotyping: Nervous System Behavior) on June 21, 1999, at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. The schedule for both projects has been carefully coordinated. The receipt date for a letter of intent is August 2, 1999, and the application deadline is October 14, 1999. The anticipated award date is August 1, 2000.
