Overview:

This Funding Opportunity Announcement invites applications to form Transporter Elucidation Centers (TECs) as part of a Transporter Elucidation Network (TEN). TECs funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) will address key knowledge gaps in functional transport of nutrients and drugs to the developing fetus and infant through a focus on human placenta, lactating mammary gland, and developing gut. Such projects may necessitate deorphanization and characterization of understudied transporters and functional variants. The NICHD-funded TECs will work together to generate knowledge and resources that will be shared with the broader research community to advance our understanding of nutrient, drug, and supplement transport to the developing fetus and infant.
