Purpose: 

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite pre-applications from applicants who have an interest in ultimately submitting an application to "Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC):  Comprehensive Functional Mapping of Neuroanatomy and Neurobiology of Organs (OT2)" (RFA-RM-15-018).

The OT1 SPARC OT pre-application is the required first step in the application process for the companion OT2 FOA (RFA-RM-15-018).  Potential applicants should read both FOAs.

Applicants whose OT1 pre-applications are found to be meritorious and programmatically relevant will be invited to submit a full application to the OT2 "Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC):  Comprehensive Functional Mapping of Neuroanatomy and Neurobiology of Organs" FOA (RFA-RM-15-018).  There will be substantial interaction with NIH Program Staff leading to the development of programmatic and budget elements for an acceptable OT2 application.  OT2 applications must include a copy of the Invitation to Submit from the SPARC program as a requirement for submission.  The Invitation to Submit an OT2 application is not an indication of any award.

No Other Transaction awards will be made under this FOA.
