Public Meeting to Request Information and Comment from Industry concerning the use of RNAi Technologies in the NIH Intramural Laboratories

Key Dates:
Release Date: October 30, 2007
Submission Due Date: December 3, 2007
Response Date: December 10, 2007 (approximate)
Meeting Date: December 17, 2007

RNAi technologies are an exciting and rapidly evolving technique to determine the functions of genes and transcripts.

NIH will establish a Trans-NIH effort to facilitate both moderate (RNAi reagents targeting 10s to 100s of genes) and high throughput screens that ultimately target entire genomes.

The NIH intramural program seeks to facilitate NIH-wide utilization of RNAi technologies. This effort should support moderate- and high-throughput use. Information for either, or both, is requested.

NIH is seeking firms/suppliers who will enter into pricing arrangements with the NIH to support this research.
