Description

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications from institutions and organizations proposing original research aimed at the characterization of the function of neoepitopes and neoantigens in type 1 diabetes. This includes the function that post-translational modifications might have in the humoral and cell mediated autoimmune responses and overall in the etiology and pathophysiology of type 1 diabetes. Proposals that include the discovery of neoantigens or neoepitopes are within the scope of this solicitation, but should propose a plan for integrating these discoveries with the present knowledge on established epitopes and antigens (e.g. autoantibodies for insulin, GAD65, IA-2, and ZnT8). In the long-term the goals of this initiative are to facilitate the development of better tools to monitor disease progression and treatment, and potentially to facilitate the development of personalized therapeutics.
