Subject Areas:
Description: Individuals discovering novel genes in patients with rare diseases initiate the process by submitting a Connection application to connect to a model organism investigator. Following agreement by the Clinical Advisory Committee that the submission satisfies relevant research areas, and upon review of the BioInformatics workup, the Scientific Advisory Committee uses the Network Registry to determine which scientists are doing work relevant to the area. The SAC will invite candidate model systems investigators to submit a 2-page application. Invitees will have one week to respond to an invitation, and then must apply for the next grant deadline. Submissions can be submitted on either the first or third Fridays of the month. Decisions will be made in one week, at the next SAC conference call (second and fourth Fridays of the month). Up to four projects will be funded from each Connection application. Recommendations for establishing a connection between a model systems investigator will be reviewed with the clinician and accepted or not.

Application Details: There is no deadline. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
