Funding Opportunity – NURSA Data Source Project

Submitted by Neil McKenna

Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) Hub Open Competition for NURSA Data Source Projects (NDSP)

The mission of the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) is to accrue, develop, and communicate information advancing our understanding of the integral role of nuclear receptor signaling in the physiology and pathophysiology of metabolic diseases including diabetes, obesity and reproductive diseases and disorders. Currently, the central core of NURSA is a Hub that provides the integration and cohesion needed to aggregate, annotate, and present in a user friendly fashion state-of-the-art data from multiple sources. A web portal,, serves as the interface with the broader scientific community. To achieve its goals, the NURSA Informatics Hub solicits applications for NURSA Data Source Projects (NDSPs) to provide innovative research input to the Hub. NDSPs are designed as focused and collaborative projects to explore key issues and questions that represent gaps in the knowledge base. Together with the Hub, the PIs of NDSPs form a consortium that works together to advance knowledge of the physiological and pathophysiological role of nuclear receptor signaling.
