Program Description

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support the development of novel model systems that permit integrated approaches to advance understanding of enteric disease at the level of basic science and, ultimately, to facilitate product development. A team of investigators from disparate scientific fields will leverage advances in biomedical and tissue engineering (e.g., the generation of complex human tissue constructs) and/or the gastrointestinal microbiome to develop models that mimic pathophysiology and host response to provide relevant predictive outcomes for human disease, such as distinct clinical outcomes or potentially lethal sequelae.
