Resources for Grant Proposal Submissions Related to CPGLO

Suggested Grant Proposal Text

The UC San Diego Center for Physiological Genomics of Low Oxygen (CPGLO) is a multidisciplinary team that supports collaborative research on the biology of hypoxia in natural populations and model systems. The goal is to explain individual differences in responses to hypoxia that are observed in patients with heart and lung disease, as well as in human and animal populations living at high altitude. CPGLO provides resources for this such as The Genetics of Altitude Adaptation Consortium (TGAAC), which collates genomic data from high-altitude human populations collected by different research groups for analysis on a common platform. CPGLO is co-directed by faculty from the UCSD School of Medicine (Simonson, Malhotra, Powell), Scripps Institution of Oceanography (Ponganis) and UCSD Dept. of Anthropology (Non) to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative large-scale research projects. CPGLO sponsors in-person and virtual meetings to plan grant proposals plus an annual summit with international leaders in the field to identify new research opportunities and priorities.

CPGLO Summit 2018

Post-Summit Opportunities

Stay connected with the Center for Physiological Genomics of Low Oxygen.

Our Post-Summit Opportunities are based on CPGLO time domains of adaptation.

1. Contribute a paragraph for a paper

Summarize a) what is known and b) what remains to be answered (and how) for a topic covered at the Summit. Please also include way(s) the topic relates to the following time domains:

  • Epigenetics & early life environments
  • Altitude adaptation & maladaptation
  • Consequences of hypoxia on physiology
  • Comparative physiology & genomics of hypoxia.

Each paragraph will be synthesized into a paper that describes how Summit ideas fit into various time domains of "adaptation" to low oxygen. This could span 100s of millions of years (comparative) to thousands of years ago (modern human adaptation over many generations) to present-day adaptations/mal-adaptations (i.e., epigeneticsand/or phenotype variation in hypoxia-related disease states such as sleep apnea).

2. Add your email to our special issue invitation list

If you have a primary research article related to this theme and are interested in submitting for review as part of a special issue in Frontiers of Physiology within the next three months, please email by 5 p.m. Friday, April 27th, to be included on our "Special Issue" email list.

3. Participate in a CPGLO grant meet-up group

Email with "Interest in CPLGO Grant Meet-ups" by 5 p.m. Friday, April 27th. We will contact you with more information and provide a calendar poll link to schedule future grant meet-ups.
