Grant Number Title Description Expires
Clinical Trial Readiness for Rare Neurological and Neuromuscular Diseases (U01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support clinical studies that will fill gaps in the design of upcoming clinical trials in rare neurological or neuromuscular diseases by validating clinical outcome measures or biomarkers, or by characterizing cohorts of relevant patients.  This is the Forms change reissue of PAR 16-020 and has replace PAR 16-020

Grant Number Title Description Expires
Cooperative Program in Translational Research for Neuromuscular Disease (U01)

Funding for full-scale single component research projects directed at developing new therapies for any neuromuscular disease.

Exploratory/Developmental Projects in Translational Research for Neuromuscular Disease (R21)

Funding for pilot projects to generate tools and proof-of-principle for therapeutics development in any neuromuscular disease.

Nuclear Structure-Function Defect in the Pathogenesis of Muscular Dystrophy (R21)

This initiative supports applications focused upon determination of the mechanisms of a subset of muscular dystrophies that may have their basis in nucleus structure-function defects. Applications are specifically solicited for studies of Emery-Dreifuss, facioscapulohumeral, limb girdle muscular dystrophy 1B, and oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophies.

Senator Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Specialized Research Centers (MDSRC) (P50)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to publicize a competition for Senator Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Specialized Research Centers (MDSRCs). These Centers promote collaborative basic, translational and clinical research and provide important resources that can be used by the national muscular dystrophy research communities. The Centers also provide an outstanding environment for the training of new scientists electing to pursue careers conducting research in high priority areas of muscular dystrophy. Center investigators are expected to participate in important community outreach efforts to increase awareness and convey the importance and implications of their research activities to the patient and advocacy communities.
