Exploratory Center Grants for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research: The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) invites applications for P20 Exploratory Grants that will support multi- investigator teams to conduct research using human embryonic stem cells (HESC). The purpose of this RFA is to encourage and enable basic biologists with little or no prior HESC experience to work with HESC and establish the utility of HESC as a model system by: 1) supporting the development of an institutional infrastructure for research using HESC; 2) encouraging research on the growth and maintenance requirements of HESC; 3) identifying biochemical and molecular markers of HESC; 4) stimulating research that will lead to a better understanding of the unique properties of HESC; and 5) supporting pilot projects that exploit the advantages of HESC as a model system to further the study of fundamental research problems. The source of HESC will be limited to federally approved stem cell lines listed on the NIH Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry, which can be found at http://escr.nih.gov.
