The Development of Novel and Emerging Technologies to Support Zebrafish Models for Biomedical Research purpose is to fund research that uses zebrafish models of biomedical value to develop technology to support the diverse aspects of the creation, detection, identification and characterization of zebrafish models of human disease and prevention of genetic stocks. Ideal development and enhancement efforts include but are not excluded to:
- High throughput system that increase the speed of phenotypic and toxicological analysis.
- Software used for the automation and standardization of embryo position
- Genetic methods to speed up production of knockout fish with reduced off-target effects.
- Methods and devices used for recording and data analysis.
- Preservation of genetic stocks.
- Production of biological reagents.
- Detection of biological markers.
- Non-fluorescence methods to measure gene expression
- Methods to monitor food intake.
- Development of humanized models.
- Creation of fluorescent fish lines
- Identification and tagging software.
- Athogen detection.
- Sex determination of embryos, larvae, juveniles and adults.
Typical award amounts of not more than $225,000 for Phase I projects and up to $1,500,000 for Phase II projects with project duration of up to two years. All applicants must meet the following criteria.
This program does not have any cost sharing requirements. Applications must be complete and received before the deadline; however, it is strongly encouraged that eligible applicants contact the NIH program officials before submitting any applications in excess of the guidelines.
