Research Announcement: Funding Opportunity Announcements

Friday, March 10, 2017

NIMHD Specialized Centers of Excellence on Minority Health and Health Disparities (U54): This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to establish NIMHD Centers of Excellence in eligible institutions of higher education. The purpose of this initiative is to advance the science of minority health and health disparities by conducting transdisciplinary, multi-level research in a defined thematic area and by providing research opportunities and support for post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty, and other investigators. Submission deadline: May 15, 2017  ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-MD-17-005.html

Planning Grants for Pragmatic Research in Healthcare Settings to Improve Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Care (R34): The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research applications to develop and pilot test approaches to improve diabetes and obesity prevention and/or treatment that are adapted for implementation in healthcare settings where individuals receive routine medical care. Research applications should be designed to pilot test practical and sustainable strategies to improve processes of care and health outcomes for individuals with or at risk of diabetes and/or obesity. The goal is that, if the pilot study shows promising results, the data from the R34 will be used to support a full-scale trial focused on improving routine healthcare practice and informing healthcare policy for the prevention or management of diabetes and obesity. Submission deadlines: May 1, 2017, November 1, 2017, March 1, 2018, November 1, 2018, March 1, 2019 and November 1, 2019 ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-17-180.html

Pragmatic Research in Healthcare Settings to Improve Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Care (R18): The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research applications to test innovative approaches to improve diabetes and obesity prevention and/or treatment that are adapted for implementation in healthcare settings where individuals receive their routine medical care. Research applications should be designed to test practical and sustainable strategies to improve processes of care and health outcomes for individuals with or at risk of diabetes and/or obesity. The research should also focus on approaches that can be broadly disseminated outside the specific setting where it is being tested. The goal of the research is to obtain results that will improve routine healthcare practice and inform healthcare policy for the prevention or management of these conditions. Therefore, interventions must be integrated into the existing healthcare structure and/or processes; the healthcare setting may not be used solely as a venue for recruitment. Submission deadlines: May 1, 2017, November 1, 2017, March 1, 2018, November 1, 2018, March 1, 2019 and November 1, 2019 ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-17-177.html

Evaluating Natural Experiments in Healthcare to Improve Diabetes Prevention and Treatment (R18): The purpose of this Research Demonstration and Dissemination Projects (R18) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research to evaluate large scale policies or programs related to healthcare delivery that are expected to influence diabetes prevention and care. This FOA is not intended to support the initiation and delivery of new policies or programs. Research support is for the evaluation of the effectiveness of healthcare programs and/or policies implemented independent of NIH grant funding. The goal is to support research that meaningfully informs clinical practice and health policy related to prevention or management of diabetes. Submission deadlines: May 1, 2017, November 1, 2017, March 1, 2018, November 1, 2018, March 1, 2019 and November 1, 2019 ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-17-178.html

NICHD Research Education Programs (R25): The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this NICHD R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Courses for Skills Development, which are encouraged to include hands-on research experiences. This FOA encourages applications to develop and conduct short-term research education programs to improve the knowledge and research skills of biomedical and behavioral scientists conducting research in areas relevant to the mission of NICHD, including reproductive, developmental, behavioral, social, and rehabilitative processes that determine the health and well-being of newborns, infants, children, adults, families, and populations. Submission deadlines: May 25, 2017, May 25, 2018 and May 25, 2019 ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-17-183.html

The Health and Retirement Study (U01): The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications for the next 6-year cycle of the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), which is the leading longitudinal data resource on patterns of age-related changes in the health and well-being of adults age 50 and older in the U.S. The goals of the next cycle are to: 1) continue the current structure and design elements of the HRS while reducing respondent burden; 2) establish a repository of blood samples for future study; 3) enrich administrative linkages and collaborations with genetics consortia; 4) conduct follow-up dementia assessment using the Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol (HCAP) to update data on the prevalence of dementia including Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias (AD/ADRD); 5) enhance harmonization with comparable surveys of population aging; and 6) augment data dissemination and user support. Submission deadline: May 16, 2017 ~ https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-AG-18-005.html
