NIH Human BioMolecular Atlas Program: 2 funding opportunities and Jan. 11 webinar
“In organisms consisting of multiple cell types, diverse cells with different functions and structures develop as we grow and age. The organization and variability of these cells have a profound impact on the function of different tissues, process of aging, and emergence of diseases and conditions. Recently developed technologies are allowing researchers to explore cells on the individual (single cell) level and provide an opportunity to establish a census of cells in human tissues and to study functional interactions among single cells. The Human BioMolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP) aims to facilitate research on single cells within tissues by supporting data generation and technology development to explore the relationship between cellular organization and function, as well as variability in normal tissue organization at the level of individual cells.” Source: https://commonfund.nih.gov/hubmap
HuBMAP recently issued two Funding Opportunity Announcements:
- Transformative Technology Development for the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program (UG3/UH3) RFA-RM-17-025
- Tissue Mapping Centers for the Human Biomolecular Atlas Program (U54) RFA-RM-17-027
Jan. 11 Pre-Application Webinar:
HuBMAP will hold a technical assistance webinar on January 11th from 11:00AM-12:00PM (EDT) to provide an overview of HuBMAP, including RFA-RM-17-025 and RFA-RM-17-027. NIH staff will discuss the overall structure and goals of the HuBMAP and the specific FOAs, then answer questions from prospective applicants.
