Funding Opportunities

NIH Oocyte mitochondrial function in relation to fertility, aging and mitochondrial disease (R01, R21)

by Nicole Gervais | Jun 20, 2017

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications from the scientific community to support outstanding research in the area of oocyte mitochondrial function in relation to fertility, aging, and mitochondrial disease transmission to offspring. The overarching goal is to gain fundamental insight into the role of mitochondria and long-term consequences of their dysfunction in the oocyte, and to develop therapeutic or alternative approaches to treat mitochondrial dysfunction for improving oocyte quality and competency, and health of the resultant offspring. It is anticipated that the results from studies supported by this FOA will provide women, suffering from infertility or subfertility and other illnesses due to mitochondrial dysfunction, practical approaches to enhance their fertility and the well-being of their offspring. This funding opportunity announcement encourages innovative and high-risk/impact studies that may lead to breakthrough in mitochondrial function, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact in understanding and treatment of mitochondrial dysfunction.

R01 - Research Grant - no fixed budget, 1-5 years Due: Feb 5, June 5, Oct 5
R21 - Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant - $275,000 over 2 years.  Due Feb 16, June 16, Oct 16
