Investigators Urged to Join the IGVF Consortium; Applications Due November 4

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has launched a new program called the Impact of Genomic Variation on Function (IGVF) Consortium. Organized as a research consortium, IGVF will bring investigators together to examine how genomes function, how genome function shapes phenotypes, and how these processes are influenced by genomic variation. The program will utilize emerging experimental and computational genomic approaches to build a catalog of the impact of genomic variants on genome function and phenotypes.  

NHGRI strongly encourages all investigators with innovative ideas aligned with IGVF goals to submit applications, especially investigators from demographic groups or institutions generally underrepresented in genomic science, new investigators, experienced investigators who are new to genomic science, and investigators who have not previously participated in a NHGRI consortium or program. Such investigators will be supported through five Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs):

For more information, attend a pre-application webinar on either September 3 or 9, 2020. Please see the NIH Office of Extramural Research webpage for additional webinar details.
