Description: The NEI intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Request for Applications (RFA) to solicit applications for research that will cooperatively and comprehensively dissect ocular surface innervation – from corneal sensation to pain circuits and tearing reflexes. This RFA aims to explore this system at three levels of analysis: morphologic, molecular, and functional. Successful projects will incorporate at least two of these three levels of analysis, and ideally all three. The premise of this RFA is that such basic biology knowledge will facilitate deeper understanding of the resultant pathobiology including neuropathic ocular pain and dry eye disease. 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 February 2021 with an expected application due date in June 2021. This FOA will utilize the U01 activity code. Details of the planned FOA are provided below.
