The DRSC is specifically mentioned in NIH NIGMS Request for Applications RFA-GM-14-003
"This initiative will provide support for biologists to collaborate with and/or access services of technology resource laboratories, including R01-funded technology developers and specialized centers and resources. Examples of the latter include, but are not limited to ... and the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center. One feature of this initiative is that the biologist, rather than the technology provider, chooses the topic, applies for the funding, and is responsible for the direction of the work."
Funding Opportunity Purpose Statement:
"The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to diversify and extend the scope and capabilities of currently funded NIGMS R01 and R37 projects for studies on macromolecular interactions and their relationship to function in cells. This FOA solicits revisions (formerly called "competing supplements") of currently funded NIGMS grants specializing in the analysis of molecular systems and mechanisms in live organelles, cells, tissues, or organisms. Applicants may increase their budgets to extend the scientific scope of their projects or to add new approaches that enhance their capabilities for research on macromolecular interactions in cells. Collaboration is not a requirement of this initiative, but applicants may request support for collaboration (including subcontracts) with investigators who have complementary expertise Support for access of modestly funded laboratories to experimental approaches and research objectives that are otherwise financially out of reach is one priority of this FOA."
Application Due-Dates: February 19, 2013 and September 19, 2013.
