Description:This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) requests Exploratory Grant (P20) applications for the planning and initiation of collaborative activities to advance Parkinson's Disease (PD) research. The goal of this FOA is to convene new transdisciplinary research consortia and formalize the multi-institutional organizational and investigational structure necessary to resolve an essential challenge in Parkinson's disease (PD) through a subsequent NINDS Udall Center without Walls (CWOW) approach. The most compelling applications will: (i) identify a fundamental PD research priority; (ii) build an exemplary research consortium; (iii) gather supportive preliminary data; and (iv) demonstrate exceptional potential to pursue a targeted strategy to remove a critical impediment blocking advancement of the understanding and treatment of PD. The stated challenge and related research feasibility projects will inform the etiology, pathogenesis or treatment of PD; investigations on related synucleinopathies may be included if such studies directly address the central PD research challenge. To foster the development of innovative research collaborations, this FOA will provide support for new research consortia only; continuation of established projects and teams will not be supported. Proposed consortia must include the optimal combination of specialized expertise required to resolve the stated challenge using a goal-driven approach. The Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) must be eminently qualified to provide visionary scientific leadership and effective oversight of consortium administrative activities. Participating investigators should be recognized as world-class experts in their fields. Teams must be anchored by at least one PD researcher. To maximize potential for new insights and incorporation of cutting-edge approaches, consortia will actively integrate at least one investigator with primary expertise in another, complementary research area.
