Innovative Adaptations to Simplify Existing Technologies for Manipulation and Analysis of Glycans (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The Common Fund Program - Accelerating Translation of Glycoscience:
Integration and Accessibility - aims to develop accessible and affordable new tools and technologies for studying carbohydrates that will allow biomedical researchers to significantly advance our understanding of the roles of these

complex molecules in health and disease.

This program will enable investigators who might not otherwise conduct research in the glycosciences, to undertake the study of carbohydrate structure and function.

This FOA solicits development of innovative adaptations of existing technologies to enable their use for readily identifying, manipulating, or analyzing glycans and their biological binding partners.

This may encompass the adaptation of commonly used laboratory-based or computational tools to enable their facile application to glycoscience for the first time, as well as the adaptation of tools presently used by specialists in glycoscience to make them significantly more straightforward and accessible for non-specialists.

It is possible that a project might simplify a current specialized approach by migrating it to a more commonly used platform, developing automation for data acquisition and interpretation, or redesigning the present tool to make it easier to use.

This announcement differs from the related RFA RM-18-036 which solicits new or more effective tools or technologies, thus representing an expansion of existing technologies.
