NHLBI Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium Planning Awards (R03): -Purpose. This FOA, issued by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, constitutes the first step in a three-step application process for the NHLBI Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium. The goal of the Consortium is to identify and characterize progenitor cell lineages, to direct the differentiation of stem and progenitor cells to desired cell fates, and to develop new strategies to address the unique challenges presented by the transplantation of these cells. The Consortium will assemble multiple independent research projects, each with a multi-disciplinary team of principal investigators, core research support facilities, and career development components to establish synergistic virtual hubs focused on progenitor cell biology. In order to enhance synergy, rapid exchange of data and resources between projects will be required. This FOA solicits short white paper applications outlining in broad terms the applicant's vision for participation in the Consortium. Applications should contain multidisciplinary proposals that bring together two or more synergistic projects at a single institution. Awardees will be required to attend a meeting in Bethesda where they will be given the opportunity to interact with other awardees, to explore potential synergies, and to develop teams. Following this meeting, these teams will be invited to apply for funding to participate in the Consortium. APPLICANTS MUST PARTICIPATE IN EACH STEP OF THE PROCESS TO BE ELIGIBLE TO SUBMIT A FULL APPLICATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONSORTIUM. -Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R03 grant mechanism. -Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The NHLBI intends to commit approximately $500,000 in FY 2009 to fund up to 20 R03 awards.
