Description:

- This Program Announcement will provide resources to validate candidate biomarkers for well-defined human diseases of liver, kidney, urological tract, digestive and hematologic systems, and endocrine and metabolic disorders, diabetes and its complications, and obesity, for which there are no or very few biomarkers, or for which standard biomarkers are currently prohibitively invasive or expensive. A biomarker is an indicator of a disease process, and could replace hard clinical end points as a measure of the effect of new therapies. Responsive studies will validate candidate biomarkers in well-defined patient populations, provide new technologies to monitor biomarkers or establish reliable assays for validated markers.

- Allowable mechanisms include the investigator-initiated regular research project grant (R01) and the Exploratory/Development Research grant (R21).

- Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.

- For-profit and non-profit organizations are eligible, including public or private institutions, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the federal government, domestic or foreign institutions/organizations, and faith-based or community-based organizations.

- Any individual with the requisite skills and experience to direct the type of research described in this RFA is eligible to apply as a principal investigator. Women and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

- Applicants may submit more than one application, provided they are scientifically distinct.

- Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html).
