NIH Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases ~ National Resource Center
Osteocyte Cultures Go to the International Space Station
With support from NIAMS, NASA, and others, the Osteocytes and mechano-transduction (Osteo-4) investigation team at NASA will analyze the effects of microgravity on osteocytes, a type of bone cell. Understanding these effects could have implications for patients on Earth who have metabolic diseases such as osteoporosis.
NIAMS Requests Information on Core Centers for Clinical Research (CCCR)
NIAMS is soliciting input from the community that will inform the NIAMS about critical aspects related to the structure and function of future core centers in support of clinical research within its mission. Reply by April 27, 2015.
Validation of Pediatric Patient Reported Outcomes in Chronic Diseases (PEPR)
The NIAMS, on behalf of the NIH, is soliciting applications and intends to capitalize on recent advances in the science of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) to measure the patient experience in clinical care and research in children with a variety of chronic diseases and conditions.
Supplements to Advance Research (STAR) from Projects to Programs
The NIAMS STAR Program promotes innovation and exploration of high-risk ideas by providing supplemental funding to early established investigators (EEIs). Eligible awardees may apply for administrative supplements.
NIH Researchers Reveal Link Between Powerful Gene Regulatory Elements and Autoimmune Diseases
Investigators have discovered the genomic switches of a blood cell key to regulating the human immune system. The findings open the door to new research and development in drugs and personalized medicine to help those with autoimmune disorders.
