Last update


The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) invites applications for the renewal of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center program, whose purpose is to conduct comprehensive research, training, and education efforts related to sickle cell disease. Comprehensive Sickle Cell Centers will conduct research to improve our understanding of sickle cell disease pathophysiology, and to develop cures or improved medical management modalities for this disease. Multi-center clinical research projects will be required. In addition, early stage clinical research or basic research (at least one of the two) will be required. Finally, translational research, health services research and high-risk, short-term basic research will be new required components in this funding cycle.

Each Principal Investigator may be listed on only one application for a Clinical Center or the Statistics and Data Management Center. One institution may apply for both awards with different Principal Investigators, but in this case two separate applications must be submitted.

Because MU is limited to one application for each program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 22, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages, includispacer.gifng 1) the type of center proposed, 2) a summary of the proposed research projects to be included, and 3) a listing of the investigators expected to be involved.


The NHLBI intends to commit approximately $23.7 million (total costs) in FY 2008 to fund ten new and/or competing continuation CSCC awards, and one new or competing SDMC award for a period of five years in response to this RFA.
