NIH Grant Opportunity Involves Circadian Rhythms & Alcohol-Induced Tissue Damage

A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications (PA-11-178) and Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) applications (PA-11-179) that propose to conduct mechanistic studies of the circadian rhythms involved in alcohol-induced organ damage. Selected examples of potential interest to sleep and circadian researchers may include: molecular mechanisms of how central or peripheral circadian rhythms are involved in alcohol-induced tissue injury; the role of clock genes and clock-controlled genes in alcohol-induced oxidative stress; and the role of circadian rhythm on alcohol’s effects at different stages of development. Standard application due dates apply.
