An Applicant Information Webinar will be held on Friday, September 6, 2013, from 3:00 – 4:30 pm EDT, to provide information about the Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) FOA to prospective applicants. This FOA (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-RM-13-013.html) seeks to establish a large-scale data production effort to systematize approaches for identifying mechanism-based associations between the effects of disparate biological perturbations, by means of signatures. NIH staff will provide an overview of the FOA and answer questions. The webinar is open to all prospective applicants. Participation in the teleconference is not a prerequisite for applying, and is not required for a successful application.
Information about how to participate in the webinar will be posted at http://commonfund.nih.gov/lincs/ by September 4, 2013. Potential applicants are encouraged to submit their questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the meeting. Afterwards, the webinar slides and a summary of the questions and answers will be posted on the same site. NIH will also post a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and answers; this information may be updated without additional notice.
