National Institutes of Health - Transgenerational Inheritance in Mammals After Environmental Exposure (TIME) (R01, R21)

Synopsis:
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), is intended to encourage grant applications that propose further investigation of known examples of transgenerational inheritance in mammals (i.e., through the F3 generation after prenatal exposure) occurring after exposure to environmental toxicants. Exploratory (R21) studies will be supported under a companion FOA, RFA-ES-12-007.

This FOA is intended to support more developed research programs, where preliminary data (published or unpublished) has demonstrated transgenerational inheritance in mouse or rat models through at least the F3 generation (or the F2 generation following adult exposures).

Applications suitable for this FOA include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Investigate the mechanism(s) by which environmentally-induced phenotypes are transmitted from generation to generation
  • Characterize strain-specific transgenerational responses and/or identify genetic factors that contribute to susceptibility to transgenerational inheritance
  • Investigate the basis of sex differences in transmission of transgenerational phenotypes
  • Define specific developmental windows of susceptibility prone to inducing transgenerationally-inherited phenotypes (prenatal or postnatal)
  • Examine the interaction between an environmental exposure and another stressor (e.g., stress, nutrition, drugs) in stimulating transgenerational responses.
  • Characterize the suite of endpoints/diseases/dysfunctions in the F3 generation as a result of exposure to the F1 generation and compare to the suite of endpoints affected in the F1 generation.
Deadlines:
  • Letter of Intent Due Date: November 19, 2012
  • Application Due Date(s): December 18, 2012, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
