Grant Description
This PA is designed to foster innovative collaborative research to characterize the structural properties of taste and smell receptors. Additional emphasis is placed on the characterization of the interactions among odors, pheromones, and taste substances with their cognate receptors, and the identity of the critical ligand-receptor binding sites that determine sensitivity and selectivity. One aim of this PA is to encourage collaborations among chemosensory molecular biologists and biochemists with expertise in the isolation and characterization of membrane proteins, and biophysicists familiar with crystallography, NMR and other analytical tools used in structural analyses. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. This funding opportunity will use the NIH Investigator-initiated research project grants (R01) and exploratory/developmental (R21) award mechanisms. You may submit (an) application(s) if your institution has any of the following characteristics: for-profit organizations; non-profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State and local governments; eligible agencies of the Federal government; domestic institutions; foreign institutions; faith-based or community-based organizations; Units of State Tribal government; and Units of Local Tribal government. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. Applicants may submit more than one application, provided they are scientifically distinct. See Section IV.1 for application materials. Telecommunications for the hearing impaired is available at: TTY 301-451-0088
