EPSB: NHLBI Exploratory Program in Systems Biology
This program supports collaborative research projects for high-risk, high impact research by multidisciplinary teams of investigators that combine computational modeling with experimental validation of model predictions to advance understanding the normal physiology and perturbations associated with heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders. This program uses clusters of R33 awards and has three rounds of competition. Within each round three collaborative grant clusters are expected to be funded. There will be three rounds of competition.
- Round 1: Funded in September 2006
- Round 2: Applications received September 2006, review March 22-23 2007, will go to May 2007 Council
- Round 3: Applications due in September 2007, will go to May 2008 Council.
The NHLBI Program Officer for EPSB is Jennie Larkin, Ph.D.
