Advancing our Understanding of the Brain Epitranscriptomics (R01) (PAR-17-153)  

National Institute of Mental Health

Background: Chemical modifications of proteins, DNA and RNA nucleoside moieties play a crucial role in gene regulation. The role of chemical modifications of RNA molecules (the epitranscriptome) in mediating brain functions is relatively unexplored. A few covalent RNA modifications have been studied extensively, and recent evidence suggests that other newly discovered RNA modifications have interesting biological and disease functions in mammals. 

Standard R01 deadlines:  Feb. 5, June 5 Oct. 5
