The long-term goal of this initiative is to move from isolated discoveries and the non-systematic accumulation of data to integrated, quantitative analyses such that each tooth structure and surrounding tissues can be fully understood as a unified system. The endpoint of this activity will be the complete characterization of teeth and their supporting tissues as an integrated biological and biomechanical system that can provide the engineering specifications and design principles required to create blueprints for the design of new teeth and their associated structures. The broad scope of this initiative requires the efforts of well-integrated, interdisciplinary teams of investigators with significant expertise in cell and developmental biology, genomics and proteomics, chemistry, material sciences, biophysics, and engineering as well as biocomputational sciences. Such groups do not spontaneously self-assemble, but can successfully coalesce around a com!
mon challenge. In recognition of the difficulty of establishing interdisciplinary research efforts, this Request for Applications (RFA) solicits applications for P20 planning grants that will support planning activities for groups of researchers to develop interdisciplinary research strategies for the development of a U54 ( Specialized Center-Cooperative Agreement). Planning activities are intended to lay the foundation and prepare investigators for submitting a subsequent application for U54. Therefore, only applicant teams who have awarded a P20 and have written a Concept Development Plan (CDP) will be eligible to apply for funding for a U54 in FY 2007.
