Notice of Intent to Publish a Request for Applications on Lung Repair and Regeneration Consortium (U01)

Notice Number: NOT-HL-11-112

Key Dates
Release Date:  July 16, 2010

Issued by
National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), (


The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) intends to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) for research programs that will constitute the Lung Repair and Regeneration Consortium (U01).  The goal of the Consortium is to foster research by highly integrated multidisciplinary scientific teams to address an important knowledge gap in fundamental mechanisms underlying lung repair and regeneration and to translate this knowledge to new regenerative medicine strategies for reversing debilitating and life-limiting pulmonary disorders. The program is expected to support development of novel tools (e.g., reagents, models, imaging, and/or data analysis tools) which will accelerate research progress in lung repair/regeneration. Applicants will be strongly encouraged to use the multiple principal investigator mechanism to facilitate collaborations among investigators with expertise in developmental/stem/progenitor cell biology, lung injury, pulmonary medicine, physiology, genomics, and bioengineering.  Experts in stem cell biology and tissue regeneration of non lung organs will be encouraged to participate in this program.   

This notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects.  The RFA is expected to be published in the Fall of 2010.  This RFA will utilize the U01 grant mechanism.
