George M. O'Brien Kidney Research Core Centers (P30)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for the George M. OBrien Kidney Research Centers to support both basic and clinical research on kidney disease. The goal of the O'Brien Kidney Research Center program is to make state-of-the art technologies and resources readily accessible to a broad spectrum of investigators pursuing studies in relevant topic areas. The emphases for this program are fourfold: (1) to attract new scientific expertise to and develop new tools for the study of human kidney physiology and disorders in humans and in animal and other models; (2) to encourage multidisciplinary research in these areas; 3) To explore new areas with translational potential; and 4) to generate Developmental Research (DR)/Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) studies which could lead to new and innovative approaches to study kidney disease.
