NIH: Limited Competition: National Primate Research Centers (P51) PAR-14-226
This FOA encourages grant applications that support the activities of the National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs). Nonhuman primates (NHPs) are most closely related to humans, both physiologically and genetically. Therefore, NHPs are critical animal models for translational research aimed at understanding human biology, both in normal and diseased states. Proper husbandry and management of NHPs require specialized physical and intellectual resources, which are most effectively and economically provided in centralized primate centers, the resources of which are made available to investigators on a national basis. The NPRCs provide these resources that complement and help enable the missions of the NIH Institutes and Centers, the grantees of which utilize NHPs to study specific diseases.
USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 20, 2015. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
