The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites applications for Core Center Grants to support molecular therapy research to develop treatments for cystic fibrosis and other genetic diseases of interest to NIDDK. Core Centers will provide shared resources to enhance the efficiency of research and foster collaborations within and among institutions with strong existing base of research relevant to gene transfer and gene correction technologies. Centers will also support a Pilot and Feasibility Program and an Educational Enrichment Program. This program is intended to foster research toward the goal of developing molecular therapies for the treatment of cystic fibrosis. Therefore, applicants should propose a central focus on molecular therapy for cystic fibrosis. Centers should also have a focus on development of new approaches for gene transfer and achieving gene correction. Many common principles are involved in the development of safe methods for targeting and achieving long- term expression of therapeutic genes for most genetic disease. Therefore, Core Center resources may also be made available to scientists developing gene therapy and gene correction approaches for genetic endocrine, metabolic, digestive, liver, kidney, urologic, and hematologic diseases.
