Pre-Application Webinar Information for Cutting Edge Informatics Tools Funding Opportunity Announcement

The NIH held a Technical Assistance webinar for investigators who are planning to submit an application in response to RFA-RM-21-020 and NOT-RM-21-019 on May 26, 2021. The funding opportunity, RFA-RM-21-020, focuses on the development of new cutting edge informatics tools (CEITs) to support the IDG program in the following ways:

  1. Develop and deploy tools to enhance the community's ability to process, analyze, and visualize IDG data
  2. Prioritize new data resources and methods to be incorporated into Pharos that will strengthen predictions about physiological and disease associations around understudied proteins
  3. Develop methods to prioritize understudied IDG proteins for deeper study using experimental assays both within the IDG pipeline or by the larger community.

      Letters of intent are due by June 15, 2021 and applications are due by July 15, 2021.

The webinar provided prospective applicants with information on the IDG Program and addressed questions pertinent to preparing applications. Webinar attendance is optional and is not required for application submission. For more information on the Illuminating the Druggable Genome Program, please visit the program website Frequently Asked Questions regarding the RFA will be updated on the Common Fund's IDG website after the webinar. Applicants are encouraged to review the FAQs and the webinar recording prior to submitting their applications.
