    (RFA-GM-14-011), note that the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research has joined the reissuance of this RFA. The NIGMS intends to commit $1 million to support applications that will be selected as a result of this announcement. The OBSSR intends to commit funds to support one award (approximately $375,000 per year for the project period, up to four years).
