The NIH Genome-Wide Association Studies in the Genes and Environment Initiative - Coordinating Center (U01) will support a Coordinating Center (CC) to serve as a centralized resource to facilitate and support genome-wide association studies and other research activities of the Genes and Environment Initiative (GEI). GEI is a four-year, NIH-wide program and is currently awaiting final Congressional approval. If approved, the program will support efforts to identify major genetic susceptibility factors for diseases of substantial public health impact and to develop technologies for reliable and reproducible measurement of potentially causative environmental exposures.

The CC will provide support and assistance to the Study Investigators and Genotyping Facilities to accomplish their goals, and conduct any cross-study analyses. The Coordinating Center will manage the logistics of the GEI-GWA program in collaboration with the NIH Program Office. The CC will also be responsible for obtaining reports and other information from the Study Investigators, Genotyping Facilities, and other investigator participants in the GEI-GWA and preparing reports for review by NIH program staff, outside advisors, etc.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, November 3, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) applicants’ experience in evaluation and analysis of phenotypic and environmental exposure data relevant to a variety of disease conditions and traits; 2) applicants’ experience in working as part of a research consortium or other collaborative activities that included both laboratory and clinical/epidemiologic partners; and 3) plans for collaboration with NIH, Study Investigators and Genotyping Facilities.


Approximately $800,000 direct costs each year for up to four years
