Summary

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to publish a funding opportunity announcement for ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Coordinating Center. The MAGen Consortium aims to develop Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to improve the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The Coordinating Center (CC) will be responsible for coordinating diverse teams, facilitating collaborative research activities, and disseminating developed resources. The funding opportunity is expected to be released in Spring 2024, with an application due date in Summer 2024. The estimated award ceiling is $800,000, and one award is expected to be granted.

Description

The National Human Genome Research Institute intends to issue a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to solicit applications for a Coordinating center (CC) for the ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) Consortium which will include the MAGen CC and the MAGen Sites (see NOT-HG-24-029). The MAGen Consortium is being established to explore the feasibility of developing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The MAGen CC will be responsible for implementing approaches to bring diverse teams together to enable synergistic and collaborative team science across the Consortium. Specifically, the CC will be responsible for technical, scientific, and administrative coordination activities to support the Consortium research activities, including the development of Consortium wide plans, the coordination of ELSI-informed ML/AI tool development and cross validation, and the dissemination of the developed resources. The intended NOFO is based on a�concept recently approved by the National Advisory Council on Human Genome Research and accompanying�discussion. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop collaborations and responsive projects. The NOFO is expected to be published in Spring 2024�with an expected application due date in Summer 2024. The NOFO will utilize the UG3/UH3 activity code. Details of the planned NOFO are provided below.

National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to publish a funding opportunity announcement for ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Development Sites. This opportunity aims to explore the feasibility of developing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The objective is to collaboratively identify both genomic and non-genomic factors influencing disease development in individuals carrying pathogenic genetic variants within a research consortium. The ML/AI tools will leverage existing multimodal genomic and non-genomic data and will be cross-validated in genomic translational research settings to ensure their robustness and generalizability. The consortium will also address the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of integrating ML/AI tools into genomic medicine. The funding opportunity is expected to be published in Spring 2024, with an application due date in Summer 2024.

ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Development Sites (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is offering a federal grant opportunity titled "ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Development Sites (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)". This grant aims to establish a research Consortium, MAGen, to collaboratively explore the feasibility of developing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The primary goal of this grant is to identify both genomic and non-genomic factors influencing disease development in individuals carrying pathogenic genetic variants. The ML/AI tools developed through this grant will leverage existing multimodal genomic and non-genomic data and will be cross-validated in genomic translational research settings to ensure their accuracy and generalizability for translational purposes. In addition to the development of ML/AI tools, the Consortium will also focus on exploring the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of integrating these tools into genomic medicine. This will involve the establishment of an ELSI Framework for their development and the implementation of ELSI research projects. The grant is a Cooperative Agreement and falls under the category of Health. The opportunity is open to various eligible applicants, including Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISISs), Eligible Agencies of the Federal Government, Faith-based or Community-based Organizations, Hispanic-serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Indian/Native American Tribal Governments (Other than Federally Recognized), Non-domestic (non-U.S.) Entities (Foreign Organizations), Regional Organizations, Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), U.S. Territory or Possession. Non-domestic (non-U.S.) Entities (Foreign Organizations) and non-U.S. components of U.S. Organizations are not eligible to apply. The grant has a closing date of July 28, 2024, and an award ceiling of $1,600,000.

Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Generate A Precision Medicine Intergenerational Resource for the Study of Factor VIII Immunogenicity in Severe Hemophilia A:Clinical Coordinating Center
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the creation of a Precision Medicine Intergenerational Resource for the Study of Factor VIII Immunogenicity in Severe Hemophilia A. This initiative aims to establish a Clinical Coordinating Center that will coordinate and support research on Factor VIII immunogenicity in severe Hemophilia A. The Clinical Coordinating Center will be responsible for managing and overseeing the project, ensuring that milestones are met, and facilitating collaboration among researchers. The FOA will provide funding for a three-year milestone-driven UG3 award, with the potential for up to four additional years of funding based on successful milestone completion. The Clinical Coordinating Center will work in parallel with a Biospecimen and Data Resource Center, which will provide data management and laboratory support for the initiative. The FOA is expected to be released in the near future, allowing potential applicants to prepare competitive and responsive scientific projects.
