The objective of this FOA is to encourage optimal utilization of large domestic animals in high-priority areas of biomedical and agricultural research. This initiative is designed to facilitate and encourage carefully designed research studies through meticulous selection of farm animals that mimic human developmental, physiological, and etiological processes to better understand the biology of normal reproduction and reproductive pathophysiology, normal and abnormal metabolism, developmental origin of diseases, precision nutrition, and improve prevention and treatment of diseases in both human and agriculturally important domestic farm animals. The anticipated outcomes include both the elucidation of fundamental information relevant for the improvement of human health and an increase in the quality of healthy animal products. It is envisioned that each application will address mission-relevant areas of both agencies.
