Proposals Sought for Pilot Public Consultation on Genes and Environment

The National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health has just issued a Request for Applications (RFA), “Public Consultation to Inform the Design of Possible Large Scale Studies of Genes and Environment in Common Disease.” (See http://grants2.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HG-06-008.html). The purpose of this RFA is to provide support for a specialized center to conduct a pilot public consultation study to obtain wide societal input to inform the design of a possible large U.S.-based longitudinal cohort study of the role of genes and environment in health and disease. Letters of intent for the RFA are due April 10, 2006. The application receipt deadline is May 10, 2006. If you are interested in applying or would like more information, please contact Dr. Jean McEwen at jean.mcewen@nih.hhs.gov or (301) 402-4997.
