NINDS Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) for Training of Postdoctoral Fellows (F32 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 18, 2019 - 1:41pm
Funding Opportunity PAR-20-021 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. (Reissue of PAR-16-458) The purpose of this award is to support outstanding scientific training of highly promising postdoctoral candidates with outstanding mentors. Candidates are eligible to apply for support from this program from ~12 months prior to the start of the proposed postdoctoral position to within 12 months after starting in postdoctoral position. Based on the early timeframe of eligibility, and the discouragement of inclusion of preliminary data, this NINDS F32 seeks to foster early, goal-directed planning and to encourage applications for bold and/or innovative projects by the candidate that have the potential for significant impact. Applications are expected to incorporate strong training in quantitative reasoning and the quantitative principles of experimental design and analysis. Support by this program is limited to the first 3 years of a candidate's activity in a specific laboratory or research environment, so as to further encourage early fellowship application and timely completion of mentored training of the postdoctoral candidate in a single environment.

HIV-associated Non-Communicable Diseases Research at Low- and Middle-Income Country Institutions (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 18, 2019 - 12:00pm
Funding Opportunity PAR-20-030 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of this -program is to support locally relevant research in critical areas of HIV-associated non-communicable diseases (NCDs) at Low- and Middle-Income Country (LMIC) Institutions, to enhance research capacity and build a network of researchers both within and across LMICs to address this critical burden. This initiative is expected to stimulate new research on the interplay between HIV and development of NCDs in persons living with HIV (PLWH), including exploratory studies to uncover the extent to which HIV infection influences the etiopathogenesis of the NCDs; and to identify and develop appropriate approaches for effective diagnosis, prevention, therapeutic interventions and integrated clinical care for PLWH with the comorbid conditions. Applicants should develop their studies in keeping with the NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities ( https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-137.html ). Research teams should contain an appropriate mix of expertise to accomplish the proposed studies, including partnerships between HIV and NCD researchers who can initiate new ideas and determine feasibility of novel approaches to understand and reduce the long-term suffering from the comorbid disorders. Applicants will also be asked to address the needs of collaborating LMIC institutions to develop capacity for carrying out research in this field. U.S. and LMIC investigators are eligible to apply for collaborative projects to be done at LMIC sites; however, a U.S. investigator must apply together with an LMIC investigator. LMICs are defined by the World Bank classification system according to Gross National Income (GNI) per capita as low-income, lower-middle-income, and upper-middle-income (http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups

Fundamental Mechanisms of Affective and Decisional Processes in Cancer Control (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 18, 2019 - 11:10am
Funding Opportunity PAR-20-034 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage projects to generate fundamental knowledge of affective processes. Basic affective science projects should have key consequences for single (e.g., cancer screening) and multiple (e.g., adherence to oral chemotherapy regimen) event decisions and behaviors across the cancer prevention and control continuum. The FOA is expected to encourage collaboration among cancer control researchers and those from scientific disciplines not traditionally connected to cancer control applications (e.g., affective and cognitive neuroscience, decision science, consumer science) to elucidate perplexing and understudied problems in affective and decision sciences with downstream implications for cancer prevention and control.

Integrative Research on Polysubstance Abuse and Disorder (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Optional)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 18, 2019 - 2:06am
Funding Opportunity PAR-20-035 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is supported by Collaborative Research on Addiction (CRAN) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a trans-NIH partnership composed of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The intent of this FOA is two-fold: (1) characterize how the neurobiological alterations, associated behaviors, and public health consequences arising from polysubstance use differ from, or are similar to, those observed in single drug use; (2) promote integrative polysubstance research along a translational pipeline, consisting of basic science research in animals, human-based laboratory investigations, and epidemiological studies. These dual objectives will be accomplished with an Exploratory/Developmental Phased Award (R61/R33) mechanism, where polysubstance research can occur in any of these translational stages during the R61 phase and these findings will be rapidly back- or forward-integrated into another stage during the R33 phase, permitting accelerated bi-directional research exchange.

U.S. and Low- and Middle-Income Country (LMIC) HIV-Associated Malignancy Research Centers (U54 Clinical Trials Optional)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 17, 2019 - 2:58am
Funding Opportunity RFA-CA-20-001 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research on HIV-associated cancers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through collaborative networks between investigators in United States (U.S.) and investigators in LMICs. The FOA solicits applications for Specialized Center Cooperative Agreements (U54) for research on HIV-associated cancers from research institutions in the U.S. and LMICs. Each application is required to propose between one to three research projects that address questions in one theme that are relevant to the LMICs and the U.S. The proposed projects may range, as appropriate, from basic research to translational efforts as well as population and implementation studies; mechanistic clinical studies that meet NIH's definition of a clinical trial will be allowed. In addition, the proposed networks must include two mandatory cores; an Administrative Core and a Developmental Core. Additional cores such as Shared Resource cores may be included as appropriate for the needs of the projects.

Limited Competition: Small Grant Program for NHLBI K01/K08/K23 Recipients (R03 - Clinical Trial Optional)

NIH Funding Opportunities (Notices, PA, RFA) - October 17, 2019 - 2:21am
Funding Opportunity RFA-HL-20-029 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this FOA is to solicit current or recently completed NHLBI K01, K08, and K23 awardees for grant support to expand their current research objectives or to branch out to a study that resulted from the research conducted under the K award. Recently completed NHLBI K01, K08, and K23 awardees are eligible to apply for the R03 if the earliest possible R03 start date falls within 2 years of their prior NHLBI K award Project Period end date. Thus, this FOA is intended to enhance the capability of NHLBI K01, K08, and K23 award recipients to conduct research as they complete their transition to fully independent investigator status. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. For current and previous K23 awardees, research proposed in the R03 application may or may not include patient-oriented research. The R03 is, therefore, intended to support research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources and that provide preliminary data to support a subsequent R01, or equivalent, application.
