The following sections of PAR-13-115 have been changed to indicate NIAMS participation in this FOA:

Part 1. Overview Information

Components of Participating Organizations

Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives, Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP)

Part 2. Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Scope

The NIAMS is interested in applications conducting basic and translational research to facilitate the use of stem cell-based therapies for both rare and common diseases/conditions in the NIAMS mission (arthritis, musculoskeletal and skin diseases). Some diseases/conditions that would be of interest include, but are not restricted to, acute injury and chronic degenerative diseases and conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system and skin, as well as monogenic diseases affecting these systems, such as epidermolysis bullosa, some ichthyoses, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, osteogenesis imperfect, osteopetrosis, and chondrodysplasias. Proposed projects can include the improvement of animal disease models for testing stem cell-based therapeutics for these diseases/conditions. Other research areas covered by this FOA may be of interest to NIAMS, provided that the research focuses on musculoskeletal and skin tissues and diseases within the NIAMS mission.
