National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), (

The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) encourages applications in translational research for NIDCD Research Core Center (P30) grants. The current "Guidelines for NIDCD Research Core Centers (P30)" can be obtained on the NIDCD Home Page (, and in Notice NOT-DC-04-001 (

The intent of this notice is to encourage using the P30 Research Core Center mechanism to promote translational research on deafness and other communication disorders. The P30 is an institutional award, made in the name of a principal investigator, to support centralized resources and facilities shared by investigators with existing research projects. The overall goal of a Core Center is to promote cooperative interactions in a manner that will enrich the effectiveness of ongoing research and/or promote new research directions.

The current guidelines already include resources for translational research among a range of potential goals. This notice does not change these guidelines, but reflects an increased interest at NIDCD/NIH in stimulating translational research. Translational P30 Core Centers are specifically to facilitate translating research advances into practical clinical applications, particularly encouraging cooperation among basic science and/or clinical investigators, and may include multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional and regional collaborations. Support could be for a variety of possible services, with examples including but not limited to bioinformatics, statistics, data management, assistance with regulatory issues, patient recruitment, specialized technical assistance, genotype or phenotype analysis, microscopy, imaging, or a range of other examples. Cores serve R01 awards, and applications in this translational category should describe clearly how the cores will facilitate advances having direct relevance for diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of disease and disorders in the mission areas of NIDCD.

Submission of Applications

All applications must be responsive to the current P30 guidelines, and will be reviewed with other P30 applications by a special NIDCD review group as described in the current P30 Guidelines. Applications will be accepted at the standard application deadlines, which are available at Application deadlines also are indicated in the PHS 398 application kit.

This Notice is one of the coordinated programs being released by the NIDCD to promote translational research, including PAR-05-023 "NIDCD Translational Research Grants" (
