Funding for Noncoding RNAs Research

Noncoding RNAs in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research in noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) to investigate the causality, directionality, mechanisms, and therapeutic potential of ncRNAs implicated in Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD). This FOA supports exploratory and developmental grant (R21) applications seeking to discover functional roles of ncRNAs and underlying mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis and progression of AD/ADRD. Proposed studies should focus on functional characterization and mechanistic investigation of previously identified ncRNAs.

All applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

Applicants are encouraged to apply early to allow adequate time to make any corrections to errors found in the application during the submission process by the due date.

No late applications will be accepted for this Funding Opportunity Announcement.

Required Application Instructions

It is critical that applicants follow the instructions in the Research (R) Instructions in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide, except where instructed to do otherwise (in this FOA or in a Notice from NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts).

Conformance to all requirements (both in the Application Guide and the FOA) is required and strictly enforced. Applicants must read and follow all application instructions in the Application Guide as well as any program-specific instructions noted in Section IV. When the program-specific instructions deviate from those in the Application Guide, follow the program-specific instructions.

Applications that do not comply with these instructions may be delayed or not accepted for review.

There are several options available to submit your application through to NIH and Department of Health and Human Services partners. You must use one of these submission options to access the application forms for this opportunity.

  1. Use the NIH ASSIST system to prepare, submit and track your application online. Apply online
  2. Use an institutional system-to-system (S2S) solution to prepare and submit your application to and eRA Commons to track your application. Check with your institutional officials regarding availability.
  3. Use Workspace to prepare and submit your application and eRA Commons to track your application
