NIH: Molecular Atlas of Lung Development - Human Tissue Core (HTC)(U01)

Program Summary

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute invites cooperative agreement (U01) applications to serve as the Human Tissue Core (HTC) for the Molecular Atlas of Lung Development Program (LungMAP). The overall goal of this program is to build an open-access reference resource by creating a comprehensive molecular atlas of the late-stage developing lung (human and mouse) with data and reagents available to the research community. The atlas will integrate gene and protein expression profiles, transcriptome, epigenome, and other molecular characterizations with high-resolution anatomical information to provide molecular profiles of functionally or anatomically defined cell types in the developing lung. The HTC will identify and manage tissue source sites to collect, process, deposit, and distribute human lung samples to the Research Centers (RCs). 

Two separate solicitations seek applications for four RCs (RFA-HL-14-008) and one Data Coordinating Center (RFA-HL-14-009). 


Only one application per institution is allowed.  Applications for the HTC, RC and DCC may be from the same Institution only if they have different PD(s)/PI(s).    

Award Information

Cooperative agreement. 

One (1) HTC will be funded by this award.  It is estimated that approximately $6,800,000 (Total Costs) will be awarded to the HTC over a five year period.  Application budgets are limited to a maximum of $250,000 direct cost for the first year and a maximum of $1,000,000 direct cost for each of the subsequent years. Budgets need to reflect actual needs of the proposed project.  The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed 5 years.   
Internal Selection Procedure
The Office of the Vice President for Research and the Carver Collge of Medicine have established an internal review procedure to select the UI nominee.
