Small Research Grants for Analyses of Data for the Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource (R03 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-069 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. REISSUE of PAR-18-733 The NIH Common Fund has established the Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) to develop a pediatric research data resource populated by genome sequence and phenotype data that will be of high value for the communities of investigators who study the genetics of childhood cancers and/or structural birth defects. The overall goal of the Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Data Resource is to help researchers understand the underlying mechanisms of these conditions, leading to more refined diagnos...

Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism (COGA) (Clinical Trial Not Allowed U10)
Funding Opportunity RFA-AA-19-001 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse (NIAAA), solicits cooperative agreement (U10) applications focusing on studies that (i) identify genetic variants that affect the susceptibility to develop alcohol dependence in adult and adolescent populations, (ii) determine molecular and functional mechanisms of these variants, (iii) identify and characterize gene x gene and gene x environment interactions leading to alcoholism, (iv) develop and refine phenotypes that will facilitate ...

NHLBI TOPMed: Omics Phenotypes of Heart, Lung, and Blood Disorders (X01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-048 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to use NIH-funded omics capacity to carry out studies of the genetic basis and/or omics signatures of common, complex heart, lung, and blood disorders. Successful applicants will provide biospecimens for whole genome sequencing or other omics assays. No funding will be provided under this FOA. The omics data and related phenotypic data will be deposited in a public database such as dbGaP. (Source: NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA))
