May 2010 DAIT Council-Approved Concepts

Concepts represent early planning stages for program announcements, request for applications, or solicitations for Council's input. If NIAID publishes an initiative from one of these concepts, we link to it below. To find initiatives, go to the Opportunities and Announcements portal.

NB: Council approval does not guarantee that a concept will become an initiative.

NIAID-Taconic Mouse Exchange

Request for Proposals

Contact: Dante Stumpo

Objective: Support distribution of immunology-related, gene-targeted mouse strains to the broader research community.

Description: This Division of Intramural Research (DIR) contract supports the breeding and distribution of novel mutant mouse strains containing gene knockout or novel trans-genes of immunological interest. The program is managed by NIAID DIR staff with input from DAIT staff, and partially supported with extramural (DAIT) funds. The mouse strains to be included in this program are based on projected value to the immunology community. The contract partially defrays the cost of mouse production so that investigators pay a reduced rate to receive animals.
