The NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research is a framework to enhance cooperative activities among the NIH Office of the Director and 15 NIH Institutes and Centers that support research on the nervous system. This FOA is released in affiliation with the Neuroscience Blueprint, with Institutes and Centers participating independently, and with participation by Institutes that are not part of the Neurosciences Blueprint. Optimal use of informatics tools (e.g., tools for analyzing data, etc.) and resources (e.g., databases, data sets, etc.) depend upon explicit understandings of concepts related to the data upon which they compute. This is typically accomplished by a tool or resource adopting a formal controlled vocabulary and ontology. For the purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), an ontology is defined as a controlled vocabulary that describes objects and the relationships between these objects in a formal way. In an effort to advance the use of powerful informatics approaches in biomedical research, this FOA solicits Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to develop an ontology that will make it possible for software to understand how two or more existing data sets relate to each other.

The Ellison Medical Foundation and the American Federation for Aging Research developed the Julie Martin Mid-Career Award in Aging Research program for outstanding mid-career scientists who propose novel directions of high importance to biological gerontology. Proposals in areas where NIH awards or other traditional sources are unlikely because the research is high risk are particularly encouraged if they have the potential for leading to major new advances in the understanding of basic mechanisms of aging. Projects investigating age-related diseases are also supported, but only if approached from the point of view of how basic aging processes may lead to these outcomes. The applicant must be an associate professor who achieved tenured status after December 1, 2004.
