Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to clarify the scope of eligible research projects described in PAR-13-207 "Biophysical and Biomechanical Aspects of Embryonic Development (R01)."

As described in Section I of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), "Research funded through this FOA will advance our knowledge of the biophysical and biomechanical factors that are critical for various aspects of morphogenesis during normal and abnormal embryonic development."

This Notice is clarifying that for the purposes of this FOA, research on morphogenesis during embryonic development may include fetal and perinatal development.  Developmental processes that are not completed until shortly after birth or hatching are appropriate for this FOA.

All other aspects of the FOA remain unchanged.
