National Institute of General Medical Sciences

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces 
the availability of administrative supplements to Principal 
Investigators with cooperative agreements (U01) funded as part of the 
Pharmacogenetics Research Network and Knowledge Base. The purpose of 
these supplements is to foster research aimed at understanding 
pharmacogenetic differences among racial and ethnic groups.  The aims 
of the supplements may be either to collect scientific information or 
to develop a sample resource.  The long term goal is to generate 
information that can be utilized to address health disparities, as 
pharmacogenetic information is translated into improved recommendations 
for clinical practice. 

Any investigator at a domestic or foreign institution is eligible; 
however, a supplemental application must be affiliated with an existing 
U01 award and submitted by an organization that is funded through the 
Pharmacogenetics Research Network.  These requests should not 
substantially change the scope of work of the sponsoring cooperative 
agreements.  New projects that clearly increase the scope of an 
existing U01 award are not suitable for this administrative supplement, 
and must undergo the usual peer review process.  For details, see 
The receipt date for supplement requests is July 16, 2001.
