This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications from single institutions to administer a multi-project multi-institution program, to conduct clinical research and assume the leadership and administrative responsibilities for the Consortium for Food Allergy Research (CoFAR). The selected applicant will continue the mission of the CoFAR, which focuses on immune and other intervention strategies for the prevention and treatment of food allergy, including food allergen-associated severe allergic reactions and anaphylaxis, and food allergen-associated eosinophilic esophagitis. The Consortium will conduct interventional trials with associated mechanistic studies, and observational/natural history and/or genetics studies with associated mechanistic studies, in order to understand better the immunopathogenesis of these conditions.
Please submit a two-page letter of intent with a list of all anticipated investigators, description of proposed aims and approach, Biosketch of the PI, and a letter of support from the Dean or Chair to email@example.com by 5:00 PM Thursday, April 10, 2014. Full proposals are due to the sponsor on 6/19/14, so you will need to have your materials in to the Office of Sponsored Programs by 6/12/14 for processing, if given the go ahead by the Proposal Review Committee.
Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
For general inquiries, or to request a listing of a limited submission opportunity that should be but is not already listed, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
