NHLBI Anticipates Issuing a New Funding Opportunity Announcement to Solicit Applications for Basic Research in Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Arterial Stiffening and the Relationship to the Development of Hypertension

Notice Number: NOT-HL-09-130

Key Dates
Release Date:   September 11, 2009

Issued by
National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), (http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov)


The purpose of this notice is to announce NHLBI’s intention to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in the Fall of 2009 to fund up to 10 R01’s beginning in fiscal year 2010. The objectives of this FOA are to support studies aimed at elucidating mechanisms underlying large, conduit artery stiffening in the context of hypertension and studies that examine the temporal relationship between large artery stiffening and the development of hypertension in animal models. Responsive applications must demonstrate the capability to measure arterial stiffening using either established models of hypertension or new animal models developed for this FOA.

This Notice encourages interested investigators with expertise in animal model development to begin to consider applying for this new FOA.
