Government Grant





This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for support of clinical studies to repurpose existing drugs or biologics (therapeutics) that have already completed at least a Phase l trial for a different indication by the time an award is made. The hypothesis for proposed studies must be developed using innovative processes to identify the therapeutic/indication pair. Examples include independent crowdsourcing strategies (e.g.,,, or any website that lists experimental drugs or biologics), or computational algorithms. Projects should be supported by scientific evidence that modulation of a therapeutic target will have a positive impact on the disease/condition. The U01 award may be used for Phase I and/or Phase II clinical trials for a new therapeutic use to establish substantial evidence of efficacy and to establish evidence of safety for the new use.
