NIH Common Fund Announces New Funding for Human Biomolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP)

The National Institutes of Health Common Fund has recently announced a new funding opportunity from the Human Biomolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP) . HuBMAP aims to accelerate the development of the next generation of tools and techniques to generate 3D tissue maps through an open data platform established in partnership with other funding agencies, programs, and the biomedical research community.

A new Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) has been issued to solicit applications for the HuBMAP Integration, Visualization, and Engagement (HIVE) Initiative (OT2) RFA-RM-18-001 .

This HIVE will serve as a central hub for the community and data framework, and will:

1) Manage the data generated by the Consortium,
2) Coordinate internal and external Consortium activities,
3) Develop novel tools for visualizing, searching and modeling data and
4) Build an atlas of tissue maps.

In order to better understand the relationship between tissue organization and function, HIVE users will be able to access, search, query, visualize, and model these 3D biomolecular maps.

A webinar has been scheduled for Thursday, February 8 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm ET to provide more information on RFA-RM-18-001 and answer any questions from prospective applicants. Interested individuals are encouraged to register for the webinar and to sign-up for the HuBMAP mailing list .
