Research Grants - Human Frontier Science Program Organization
HFSP Research Grants support innovative basic research into fundamental biological problems with emphasis placed on novel and interdisciplinary approaches that involve scientific exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries.
Research grants are provided for teams of scientists from different countries who wish to combine their expertise in innovative approaches to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories. Preliminary results are not required and applicants are expected to develop new lines of research through the research collaboration.
Two types of Grant are available:
- Research Grants – Program (RG-Program): to allow teams of independent researchers to develop new lines of research through a new collaboration, with applications including independent investigators early in their careers being particularly encouraged;
- Research Grants – Early Career: to enable teams of young investigators who are directing a research group to initiate and direct their own independent lines of research.
Closing date (Letter of Intent): 21 March 2023

Notice of Special Interest: Collaborative Studies on Alzheimer's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD): NIH
This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) facilitates collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and multi-institutional approaches that will contribute new and vital information and insights about normal aging and the clinical and pathological course of AD/ADRD and/or that can advance the research agendas in any of the eight focus areas outlined in the AD/ADRD Research Implementation Milestones. Specifically, this NOSI solicits R01 applications that address its overarching objectives: 1) to promote the wider sharing and leveraging of NIA’s existing AD/ADRD resources by facilitating access to unique resources (such as the availability of neuropathological data on thousands of participants) and the collection and integration of new data and samples, and 2) to broaden the participation of researchers in the design, analysis, and interpretation of results from collaborative research that makes use of these unique resources to answer novel scientific questions.
Application and Submission Information: This notice applies to due dates through November 13, 2024.
Submit applications for this initiative using the following funding opportunity announcement (FOA) or any reissue of the announcement through the expiration date of this notice.

In-Depth Phenotyping and Research Using IMPC-Generated Knockout Mouse Strains Exhibiting Embryonic or Perinatal Lethality or Subviability (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications to phenotype and/or perform research on embryonic lethal knockout (KO) mouse strains being generated through the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) of which the NIH Knockout Mouse Phenotyping Program (KOMP2) is a member. The mission of IMPC is to generate a comprehensive catalogue of mammalian gene function that will provide the foundation for functional analyses of human genetic variation. The current (July 19, 2022) IMPC data release includes phenotypic data for 8260 knockout genes. Overall, the IMPC hopes to generate a null mutant and undertake broad-based phenotyping for every gene in the mouse genome. About 30% of these strains are expected to be either embryonic or perinatal lethal, or subviable. However, a large portion of homozygous lethal mutations are expected to have viable heterozygous phenotypes. The scientific community has the unique opportunity to leverage these mouse strains while they are being created and bred as part of the IMPC adult mouse phenotyping effort to perform additional in-depth phenotyping and research.
Deadline: standard due dates until January 08, 2026. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
