Genetic Architecture of Mental Disorders in Ancestrally Diverse Populations (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The following Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks applications proposing coordinated efforts to accelerate gene discovery for psychiatric disorders in cohorts of non-European ancestry to advance the important goal of global mental health discovery and equity.

Specifically, this FOA seeks to support the genetic and clinical characterization of patients with severe mental illness in global populations of non-European ancestry for the purpose of enhancing efforts to fine-map genetic risk loci across the allelic spectrum.

This FOA is one of several FOAs supporting a program called, “Ending Disparities in Mental Health” (EDIfy-MH).

Companion FOA: PAR-20-027, Collaborative U01
