Opportunity PA-06-538: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) on Immunology of Biofilms evolved from two NIDCR sponsored advisory conferences: Biofilm Network Initiative Meeting (June 2004) and Oral Mucosal Immunology Advisory Meeting (Oct 2004). It aims to stimulate research on host response to microbial biofilms leading to improved strategies for diagnosing, preventing and treating biofilm-associated infectious diseases. Collaborative projects, both domestic and international, that bring together investigators in diverse scientific disciplines studying biofilms are encouraged. An aim of this FOA is to link clinical experts, such as dentists, physicians, and nurses, with basic scientists such as immunologists, microbiologists, material scientists, mathematicians to better identify the clinical problems associated with host response to microbial biofilm associated infection. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-06-537, that solicits applications under the R01 mechanism. The total amount to be awarded. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. The anticipated number of awards will depend on merit of the application (s) received.
