DARPA is soliciting proposals for research aimed at identifying molecules and mechanisms of host interactions with the gut microbiome that are associated with the restorative effect of sleep on cognitive performance. This call is issued under the Biological Technologies BAA HR001122S0034 – https://sam.gov/opp/4f70483c0b4b49aeac299342a36af04d/view. Submission of abstracts is strongly recommended.
An information webinar will be held 28 March 2023. Register at https://events.sa-meetings.com/SomnusMar2023 by 24 March.
DARPA is interested in revolutionary research ideas to assess and modulate the impact of gut microbiota on sleep-wake states and cognitive function across acute sleep deprivation and recovery according to the following 17-month structure. The Somnus study is divided into a base period of performance of 13 months and an option period of 4 months.
– Abstracts due 17 April 2023; full proposals due 1 June 2023; DARPA-SN-23-40+FINAL+(SAM.gov)HR001122S0034
