2:00 to 3:30 pm Eastern Time
A technical assistance webinar will be held for potential applicants for the following Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO): Scalable and Systematic Neurobiology of Risk Genes for Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (SSPsyGene) Consortium: Data Generation Centers and trials (RM1) (RFA-MH-24-145 ). National Institute of Mental Health staff will be available to answer questions related to this NOFO. Participation in the webinar is optional and is not required to apply for these supplemental applications.
Awards from this NOFO will be part of a collaborative consortium with the long-term goal of developing a comprehensive phenotypic catalog at biological scales for genes and genetic variants associated with psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders (NPD). This resource will be available for broad use by the biomedical community. The SSPsyGene Consortium will support multidisciplinary research centers to optimize and implement systematic and scalable approaches to characterize the developmental, molecular, cellular, systems, and organismal neurobiological function of genes associated with NPD risk. The resulting phenotypic data will be integrated across modalities, levels of organization, and genes to create an integrated and harmonized knowledge base that forms a robust foundation of data needed to make robust inferences about potential unique and shared disease mechanisms. To achieve this goal, NIMH established and proposes to expand a consortium of multi-site researchers with extensive experience in the areas of genomics, high-throughput technology, and neurobiology, linked together through a central Administrative Coordination Center and resources. data that serves to promote collaboration and communication and to provide data integration across the consortium.
