(Re)Building a Kidney: Cells to Organ (UH2/UH3)
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-14-010 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites new research project applications to participate in the NIDDK (Re)Building a Kidney Consortium. The projects will be part of a research network focused on the expansion of tools, resources, and knowledge that will guide studies on the in vivo regeneration of functional nephrons or in vitro generation of nephrons for kidney transplant. Funds will be made available through the UH2/UH3 cooperative agreement award mechanism. The initial UH2 phase will support milestone-driven projects that will inform strategies for the enhancement of endogenous regenerative repair processes and generation of cell types important for the development of functional nephrons. UH2 projects that have met their scientific milestones will be eligible for transition to the second UH3 phase after NIH administrative review. The UH3 award is to provide a second phase for the support for innovative exploratory and development research activities initiated under the UH2 mechanism. UH3 phase will support milestone-driven projects. It is anticipated that relevant projects will be integrated as appropriate to further synergistic interactions and collaborations.
