NIH: Elucidating the Roles of Transposable Elements in AD/ADRD and Aging (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

NIH FOA to support hypothesis-driven research to gain an understanding of the dysregulation of transposable elements and their contributions to Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias and aging.

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement is to support hypothesis-driven research to gain an understanding of the dysregulation of transposable elements (TE) and their contributions to Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias and aging. This FOA encourages applications that investigate causal effects of TE activation in disease and aging and applications that model therapeutic interventions to facilitate the transition of the field from observational discovery towards a deeper mechanistic understanding of the function and regulation of TEs.

Amount: $2,630,000 – $3,650,000

Deadline: Nov. 2, 2021
