The NIDDK supports two independent basic-science consortia that are designed to generate or facilitate phenotyping of animal models of disease. The purpose of this RFA is to solicit applications for a Coordinating and Bioinformatics Unit (CBU) that will jointly serve the administrative and bioinformatics needs of these two projects--Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers and Animal Models of Diabetic Complications Consortium.

The Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers (MMPC) provide the scientific community with standardized, high-quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping services for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders. The Animal Models of Diabetic Complications Consortium (AMDCC) develops new and innovative animal models of diabetic complications to support translational research for these conditions. The Coordinating and Bioinformatics Unit (CBU) that is responsible for establishing and maintaining the AMDCC website and database, and for coordinating consortium activities. The CBU will provide administrative coordination and bioinformatics support for MMPC and AMDCC consortia. The MMPC Consortium will consist of 4-5 cooperating Phenotyping Centers and this shared CBU; it will be guided by an MMPC Executive Steering Committee and External Advisory Board. The AMDCC will consist of a Mouse Generation and Husbandry Core, multiple pathobiology sites and this shared CBU; it will be guided by an AMDCC Executive Steering Committee and External Advisory Board.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, September 9, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include outlines of the proposed CBU structure, activities and budget.

Amount: $4,000,000.  An applicant may request a project period of up to five years and a budget of up to $1 million total costs in FY2006 and $750,000 total costs per year for years 2-5. The CBU should have a Director, a full-time administrator, and additional personnel as needed for its proposed activities. In addition, the CBU should request up to $300,000 per year for MMPC Pilot and Feasibility projects to be funded via subcontracts from the CBU.
MU Deadline: September 9, 2005
