Description: The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for Exploratory Grants for NINDS Morris K. Udall Parkinson's Disease Research Center Without Walls. The purpose of this FOA for Exploratory Grant (P20) applications is to support the formation of new, highly skilled research consortia to address urgent and emergent challenges posed by the inherent complexity of Parkinson's Disease (PD). Resolution of some particularly difficult challenges requires a transdisciplinary "Center without Walls (CWOW)" approach, in which a specialized research consortium works seamlessly across institutional, geographic and research boundaries using a goal-driven approach to resolve an essential question or controversy in PD. Development of an effective research consortium, identification of an optimal strategy and planning of comprehensive efforts to address fundamental challenges in PD research require dedicated time and resources. Therefore, this NINDS initiative will provide up to two years of support for new collaborative teams to initiate planning, develop organizational structure, perform research feasibility studies and obtain preliminary data that will lead directly to the submission of a competitive NINDS Morris K. Udall Center without Walls for PD Research (Udall PD CWOW) application. The Exploratory Grant mechanism provides each applicant consortium with flexibility in choice of PD research challenge and project design. That stated, the consortium will select and justify a timely, relatively implementation-ready challenge, such that the team can effectively mobilize required data, skills and resources within a two-year period. Because a goal of this initiative is to establish new research consortia, preliminary data is not required for proposed research feasibility projects. The components required to form effective partnerships and develop a rigorous evidence base will involve a range of research expertise, multiple sites and institutional resources. All activities will be directed toward development and submission of a subsequent NINDS Udall PD CWOW application. Udall PD CWOW applications are expected to transform PD research and treatment through transdisciplinary, synergistic and timely resolution of an identified critical challenge in PD research. The anticipated scope of the ensuing Udall PD CWOW applications will include the optimal combination of preclinical and clinical reseaserch necessary to address the identified challenge and to meet stated goals within a five-year project period. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in Autumn 2018 with an expected application due date in Winter 2018. This FOA will utilize the P20 Exploratory Grant activity code. Details of the planned FOA are provided below.
