Molecular Imaging of the Lung- Phase 2 (R01)


Friday, May 15, 2015

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Research Project Grant (R01) applications to develop novel in vivo imaging technologies using molecular probes that target pathways or cells involved in the pathobiology of pulmonary diseases. The long-term goal of this program is to develop novel molecular imaging entities and approaches that facilitate early detection and diagnosis of lung disease, enable noninvasive monitoring of lung disease progression and prognosis, and accelerate progress of cell-specific drug delivery and therapies. The previous FOA (RFA-HL-12-036 - Phase 1) supported projects to develop and validate innovative novel imaging agents and approaches that included target selection, probe development and production, and initial characterization of the probe. Phase 2 of this initiative will support studies that advance translation of identified probes and associated imaging approaches from animal models into applicability for human lung diseases. Phase 2 studies must include work performed in vivo using appropriate animal models of lung disease and studies using human tissues and/or cells. Applications proposing Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling studies of novel probes and imaging approaches are encouraged. Applicants are not required to have been funded in Phase 1 (RFA-HL-12-036) in order to submit applications for Phase 2. - See more at:
