Osteoimmunology- Crosstalk between Immune System and Bone (R21): The Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on a field of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research. Purpose. The goal of this FOA is to solicit novel research projects designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the intersystem crosstalk between alveolar bone and the immune system, and how osteoimmunology operates in normal and pathologic conditions. It will contribute to our understanding of how both systems are regulated in a physiologic context, at the molecular and cellular levels and at the level of organ systems. Specifically this initiative will solicit research that will identify the influence of the immune system on oral bone biology; the extent to which normal immune responses affect oral bone homeostasis; the consequences of oral bone metabolism on adaptive immune responses; the interplay between the immune system and age-related oral bone changes; and the changes in the host immune system that impact oral bone loss. The emerging field of osteoimmunology is important for formulating intervention strategies for periodontitis as well as for basic and clinical studies in related fields. Mechanism of Support.
