Epigenomics of Human Health and Disease
This initiative will support research on fundamental epigenomic changes or mechanisms underlying specific diseases; conditions of development or aging; or response to exposures (physical, chemical, behavioral, and social factors). This initiative will be funded as a 50/50 cost share between the NIH Roadmap and specific NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices. The initiative will be released under multiple funding mechanisms dependent on research priorities and needs of participating ICs. The Roadmap/IC co-funding mechanism will foster multiple IC involvement and ensure easy transition to individual ICs at the end of each funding period. The first set of RFAs are expected to be released in 2008, with additional RFAs released annually beginning in 2009.
