Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS): - The Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) program establishes academic Centers for advanced genome research, using the P50 Specialized Center mechanism. Each CEGS grant supports a multi-investigator, interdisciplinary team to develop innovative genomic approaches to address a particular biological problem. A CEGS project will address a critical issue in genomic science, proposing a solution that would be a very substantial advance. Thus, the research conducted at these Centers will entail substantial risk, balanced by outstanding scientific and management plans and very high potential payoff. A CEGS will focus on the development of novel technological or computational methods for the production or analysis of comprehensive data sets, or on a particular genome-scale biological problem, or on other ways to develop and use genomic approaches for understanding biological systems. - Exploiting its outstanding scientific plan and team, each CEGS will nurture genomic science at its institution by facilitating the interaction of investigators from different disciplines, and by providing training of new investigators will expand the pool of professional genomics scientists and engineers. - The formation of new groups of investigators to conduct genomic research is particularly encouraged. As some newly formed groups may require substantial time and support for development and planning before being in a position to submit a high quality Center grant application, a CEGS Planning Grant (P20) is offered to facilitate such planning. - NHGRI and NIMH anticipate supporting approximately ten CEGS P50 projects at any one time. The number of P20 projects to be supported is not fixed. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the high-quality applications received. - This announcement uses the P50 Specialized Center and the P20 Exploratory Center mechanisms. - Eligible organizations include: Non-profit organizations; Public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; Units of State government; Units of local government; Eligible agencies of the Federal government; and Domestic Institutions. - Eligible Principal Investigators include any individual with the skills, knowledge, experience and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. - An applicant may submit only one application per receipt date. - See Section IV.1 for application materials. - Telecommunications for the hearing impaired is available at: TTY 301-451-0088
