Novel Tools for Investigating Brain-derived GPCRs in Mental Health Research (R41/R42)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) that propose to develop technologies and approaches (i.e., novel ways to use new or existing technologies) that will enable researchers to study the structure and/or function of brain localized G-protein coupled receptor proteins (GPCRs) and/or potentially identify novel selective and specific agonists/antagonists to these receptor subtypes, with a focus on mental health function or dysfunction, including HIV-related neurocognitive disorders. Technologies and approaches aimed at known receptor subtypes or orphan receptors would be of potential interest to NIMH.
