Opportunity RFA-AR-09-002: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) (http://www.niams.nih.gov/), National Institutes of Health, solicits applications that promote collaborations among groups of investigators who have not interacted traditionally but have a clear shared scientific area of interest and opportunity in specific NIAMS mission areas. Purpose. To promote interdisciplinary research, the NIAMS plans to provide up to 1 year of research revision support (formerly referred to as supplement) to active NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50, or P60 (parent grants) to establish collaborations among groups of investigators with expertise in the specific areas listed below. The interdisciplinary collaboration should be basic and/or translational research with high innovation and potentially high impact in the specific NIAMS missionrelevant areas solicited in this FOA. It is understood that such an application may entail high risk. Teams developed under this award are expected to make significant advances beyond the progress expected from the individual researchers alone. Collaborations between scientific areas listed below are selected to pilot the NIAMS BIRT awards and specifically solicited in this FOA. Autoimmunity Gender and sex factors Autoimmunity Systems biology Developmental biology Systems biology Regenerative Medicine Immunology Soft tissue biology Imaging technologies Tissue engineering Developmental biology Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH revision to U01, U54, P01, P50, and P60 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA (RFA-AR-09-001) of identical scientific scope that solicits applications under the R01 mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The NIAMS plans to commit approximately $1M in direct costs in FY 2009 to fund up to 10 BIRT awards for both RFA-AR-09-001 and RFA-AR-09-002. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of meritorious applications. Budget and Project Period.The total project period for each revision application submitted in response to this FOA may not exceed 1 year. To ensure sufficient time for full development of collaboration, the parent grant should not end earlier than January 31, 2011. Direct costs requested for the revision are limited to $100,000. No additional documented permission is required if the awarded amount puts the NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50, or P60 total direct cost above $500,000. Equipment costs will be awarded only in exceptional circumstances. Prior approval from Program Directors is required and the request for equipment costs must be submitted on the Letters of Intent Receipt Date of this FOA. Application Research Plan Component Length: Must not exceed 5 pages Eligible Institutions/Organizations. Institutions/organizations listed in Section III, 1.A. are eligible to apply. This FOA is a revision to encourage a principal investigator (PI) who has an active NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50, or P60. to develop new interdisciplinary collaborations with independent investigators of other disciplines supported by the NIAMS, other NIH ICs, or other funding agencies. It is expected that the new collaboration will significantly expand the scope of their ongoing NIAMS research by adding expertise and approaches from another discipline. Subproject PIs of U54, P01, P50, or P60 can also develop new interdisciplinary collaborations with independent investigators of other disciplines. However, the application must be sent in as a multi-PI application with the parent grant PD/PI as the Contact PI. . Independent investigators with other awards are encouraged to apply in concert with NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50, or P60 grantees. Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs). Individuals with an existing active NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50 or P60 and who have the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research are invited to work with their institution/organization to develop an application for support. Subproject PIs of U54, P01, P50, or P60 may also develop new interdisciplinary collaborations with independent investigators of other disciplines. However, the application must be sent in as a multi-PI application with the parent grant PD/PI as the Contact PI.Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. Number of PDs/PIs. More than one PD/PI (i.e., multiple PDs/PIs), may be designated on the application. Number of Applications. Applicants may submit more than one application, provided they are scientifically distinct. A BIRT application can be submitted for each active NIAMS U01, U54, P01, P50, or P60, and/or for each of their subprojects, i.e. more than one BIRT application can be submitted for each U54, P01, P50, or P60. If a revision is submitted by a subproject PD/PI in a multi-PI application with the parent PD/PI as the Contact PI,the PI of an NIAMS U54, P01, P50, or P60 grant must also write a letter of agreement stating that the revision support will be used for the requested collaboration. A BIRT application can not be requested to support collaborations among investigators who already have on-going, formal collaborations in the parent grant or other funded projects, with the exception that when subproject PIs of U54, P01, P50, or P60 develop new interdisciplinary collaborations with independent investigators of other disciplines, the subproject PI and the collaborator(s) must use multi-PI application and apply with the parent PD/PI as the Contact PI. Resubmissions.Resubmission applications are not permitted in response to this FOA. Renewals. No competing renewals are allowed
