Genomic Research in AAT-Deficiency and Sarcoidosis study (GRADS) Cooperative Research Project Grant: Genomics and Informatics Center (GIC) (U01): The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by NHLBI, NIH, is to invite applications to participate in the NHLBI Genomic Research in Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency and Sarcoidosis (GRADS) program, which will assemble a multidisciplinary team of investigators to conduct state-of-art genomic, microbiomics and phenotypic studies of two serious and understudied conditions that affect the lungs: Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AAT) and sarcoidosis. GRADS will include multiple Clinical Centers and one Genomics and Informatics Center (GIC). This FOA solicits applications for the GIC and runs in parallel with a separate FOA that solicits applications for the Clinical Centers (see RFA-HL-12-013). The four main functions of the GRADS GIC are: (1) coordinate activities for the Clinical Centers that will recruit, clinically and immuno- phenotype AAT and sarcoidosis subjects and obtain biospecimens from them, (2) perform transcriptome and microbiome analyses (mRNA, miRNA, viro-, phylo-chip) of the samples obtained by the Clinical Centers, (3) analyze -omic data, testing for associations with the clinical and immune- phenotypes, and (4) prepare a dataset for deposit in the NHLBI BioLINCC repository (https://biolincc.nhlbi.nih.gov/new_data_set_policy/) for distribution to external investigators. This program will require multidisciplinary research collaboration among genomic and microbiome scientists, bioinformaticians, and clinicians with expertise in these diseases.
