The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute of
Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institute of Arthritis
and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), National Cancer Institute
(NCI), National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), National Center for
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), and National Institute on
Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) invite qualified researchers to
submit applications for research project grants to investigate the
pathogenesis and new treatments for primary and secondary lymphedema. The
purpose of this program announcement is to stimulate research on the biology
of the lymphatic system, to characterize at the molecular, cellular, tissue,
organ, and intact organism levels, the pathophysiologic mechanisms that cause
the disease, to develop new methods for quantitating and imaging lymph flow,
to discover new therapeutic interventions, and to determine the safety,
efficacy and mechanisms of action of complementary and alternative therapies.
The scope of this research includes developmental biology and genetics of the
lymphatic system to identify and characterize genes important for its
organization and regulation. Such knowledge will help to improve early
diagnosis of affected individuals, the choice and timing of treatment, and
genetic counseling. Research is also needed on the pathophysiology of the
disorders of skin and subcutaneous tissue secondary to chronic lymphedema,
and lymphedema which results from cancers and cancer treatment, with an
ultimate goal to develop more targeted and effective therapies.
