The overall purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to invite applicants from multidisciplinary research teams to develop a community-based resource of microbial data associated with the resident ocular microbiome of healthy individuals. Interests also exist in identifying factors microbial communities elaborate that impact human physiology. This announcement will support research projects designed to: delineate and characterize core ocular microbial constituents in the front of the eye; understand their immune and neuro interactions and contributions to the maintenance of homeostasis; and integrate microbiome, omics, and clinical data to determine profiles that promote health of the ocular surface. The front of the eye or anterior segment includes the ocular surface, cornea, iris, ciliary body, conjunctiva, lens, eyelids and periocular skin.
