The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to establish inter-disciplinary collaborative projects to advance studies of macromolecular interactions and their relationship to function in cells. These collaborations are designed to integrate additional research strategies into NIGMS' research base of laboratories specializing in macromolecular function in living systems. Grantees may use this funding opportunity to (i) complement each other's capabilities (for example, in biochemistry, genetics, chemistry, or pharmacology), where the innovation is in the biology rather than in the technology; (ii) apply proven technologies that are technically challenging, expensive, or not yet widely used in cell biology and allied fields (for example, mass spectrometry, high-throughput screening); (iii) develop, pilot, evaluate, and/or apply emerging technologies (for example, super resolution light microscopy); (iv) carry out feasibility studies or upstream research and development of new technological concepts that are unproven, but potentially useful for study of macromolecular interactions. This FOA invites unconventional research strategies, including exploratory, descriptive, and statistical approaches, and encourages discovery and hypothesis generation as research objectives. This FOA uses the NIH multiple program director(s)/principal investigator(s) (PD(s)/PI(s)) model, the R01 activity, and the modular budget grant application format.
