Limited Submission Announcement

The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) Skin Diseases Research Core Centers (SDRCs) (P30s) will provide shared facilities and services to groups of established, currently funded investigators addressing scientific problems in skin biology and diseases in order to improve efficiency, accelerate the pace of research, and ensure greater productivity. In addition to providing services and resources to facilitate independently funded research projects, Core Centers are encouraged to enhance the research environment and promote synergistic collaborations among the Center Investigator. Scientific core personnel should help to educate the Center Investigators in the capabilities and limitations of the technologies employed by the scientific cores. The technologies of the cores should not only evolve with the science conducted by the Center Investigators, but the cores should help to drive the science with increasingly sophisticated and powerful technologies.
