Notice of Special Interest: Genetics of Alcohol Sensitivity and Tolerance

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of this notice of special interest (NOSI) is to provide enhanced understanding of genetic, genomic, and epigenetic factors contributing to biological processes for individual variation in sensitivity, the development of tolerance, and progression to AUD. NIAAA is interested in projects that will develop innovative strategies integrating both experimental and bioinformatics approaches to establish causality for candidate genes from GWAS and linkage studies and to provide insights into genetic mechanisms of alcohol sensitivity and the development of tolerance through investigation of genomic, epigenetic, or transcriptional variation, and gene network and pathway analyses. Applicants are encouraged to consider model systems in which these complex relationships can be better studied under defined genetic backgrounds and well-controlled environmental conditions.

This notice applies to due dates on or after October 5, 2021 and subsequent receipt dates through May 8, 2024.
