Large Animal Testing Centers for Evaluation of Somatic Cell Genome Editing Tools (U42 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support large animal Testing Centers to evaluate in vivo genome editing technologies developed by other investigators in the Somatic Cell Genome Editing Program (SCGE).

Testing Centers will use either pigs or non-human primates,


including wild-type animals, as well as reporter animals developed by RFA-RM-18-01 3. The Testing Centers will work collaboratively with investigators funded under RM-18-016 and RFA-RM-18-017 to assess efficacy and safety of in vivo genome editing and delivery technologies.

Centers will breed, archive and maintain cohorts of well characterized and genotyped large animals, establish methods and protocols for the evaluation of the delivery systems and editing tools, conduct testing and provide results to the Dissemination and Coordination Center of the SCGE.

Such activities will accelerate the translation of genome editing technologies into treatments for human diseases.
