  • NIH Common Fund’s Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program

    The goal of the Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) is to help researchers uncover new insights into the biology of childhood cancer and structural birth defects, including the discovery of shared genetic pathways between these disorders. Kids First is achieving this goal through two initiatives: 1) identifying children with childhood cancer and structural birth defects and their families for whole genome sequencing; and 2) developing the Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource-- a large-scale database of clinical and genetic data from patients and families directly affected by with childhood cancers and structural birth defects. The Kids First program continues to make interoperable data and unique data analysis tools available to investigators for concurrent study, and to engage the research community using these resources in activities such as integration, curation, data harmonization and workflow development which further increase the value of Kids First data resources. The research supported by Kids First is poised to shift the scientific landscape for patients and patient families who are experiencing childhood cancer and structural birth defects.

  • NIH Common Fund's Somatic Mosaicism across Human Tissues (SMaHT) Network

    The NIH Common Fund's Somatic Mosaicism across Human Tissues (SMaHT) Network aims to transform our understanding of how somatic mosaicism in human cells influences biology and disease. We all have personal genomes that are composed of the DNA sequence we inherit and of changes to that DNA sequence that occur over time in individual cells. Somatic mosaicism refers to the post-conception changes to our DNA that lead to genetic variation among cells within an individual. We know that somatic mosaicism can lead to diseases like cancer, but we don't know how much somatic mosaicism there is in our tissues or how much it influences human biology. The goal of the SMaHT Network is to catalyze research on the impact of somatic mosaicism on human development and disease by discovering and cataloging the extent of somatic mosaicism in human tissues.

  • Complement-ARIE Concept Challenge Informational Webinar and Panel Q&A

    The NIH Common Fund is conducting strategic planning for a potential Complement-ARIE program to catalyze the development, standardization, validation, and use of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) that will more accurately model human biology.  

    As part of planning for this potential program, the NIH’s Office of Strategic Coordination (which oversees the Common Fund) has launched a prize competition to solicit entries for new methods and approaches that would complement, make more efficient, or in some cases, replace traditional models transforming the way biomedical science is conducted. Winning ideas could help to inform the goals of the Complement-ARIE program concept. 

    On December 6, 2023, the Common Fund hosted a Q&A panel discussion webinar where solvers could learn more about the prize competition and submit questions to a panel of experts.

    The challenge submission deadline is January 11, 2024.
