Tuesday, August 10, 2021
Friday, October 22, 2021
RFA-NS-21-009

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This is one of two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) that together aim to facilitate teaching of fundamental principles of rigorous biomedical research by developing an online educational resource for use by a broad range of researchers in an array of learning environments. The purpose of this FOA is to support the establishment of a center for Creating an Educational Nexus for Training in Experimental Rigor (CENTER), which will build, evaluate, and disseminate a user-friendly, harmonized, and openly accessible educational resource to promote awareness, understanding, and utilization of the principles of rigorous biomedical research.

RFA
Friday, August 6, 2021
Tuesday, November 23, 2021
U01
RFA-NS-22-001

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support hypothesis-driven clinical research applications that are focused on discovering novel diagnostic, prognostic, and/or therapeutic biomarkers for the Lewy Body Dementias (LBD).Biomarker research must be conducted in patients with LBD, must follow Parkinson's Disease Biomarker Program (PDBP) protocols for clinical assessment and biospecimen collection,and must be broadly shareable through the PDBP repositories.

Multi-Disciplinary Collaborations to Understand Mechanisms of Systemic Immune Signaling and Inflammation in ADRD and its Progression (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PAR
Friday, August 6, 2021
Saturday, October 23, 2021
R01
PAR-22-023

Funding Opportunity Purpose

Recent findings have raised the hypothesis that systemic immune responses could play direct or indirect roles in brain neurodegeneration leading to AD/ADRD, and has been significantly less studied compared to innate immune mechanisms such as microglia in the brain. This initiative will capitalize on growing interest in the research community and will support partnerships and new collaborations between neuroscientists and immunologists to expand the research base in this area with the long-term goal of bringing more immunology expertise into the AD/ADRD field. This is a new initiative seeking research into the role of systemic immune responses and inflammation in AD/ADRD. Individual projects are sought and collaborations between neuroscientists with expertise in AD/ADRDs and immunologists will be highly encouraged. Through these awards, a more solid research base in this area will be established that can support further work in this area through investigator-initiated and other mechanisms.

Leveraging Existing Data Resources for Computational Model and Tool Development to Discover Novel Candidate Mechanisms and Biomarkers for ADRD (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Monday, August 2, 2021
Wednesday, October 27, 2021
R01
RFA-NS-22-006

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to expand the use of existing ADRD data resources to drive, via computational model development and dissemination, new discoveries that can lead to better understanding of mechanisms, clinical risk assessment and outcomes, and to identify novel candidate biomarkers for ADRD.

PAR
Thursday, July 29, 2021
Friday, July 14, 2023
R25
PAR-21-256

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this NINDS R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.

Notice of Special Interest: Adding TBI Assessments to AD/ADRD Cohorts

Notice of Special Interest
Thursday, July 29, 2021
Tuesday, November 16, 2021
333
NOT-NS-22-002

Funding Opportunity Purpose

These administrative supplements will provide funding to existing AD/ADRD cohort studies to support the inclusion/addition of NINDS Common Data Elements (CDEs) for life-time exposure to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other relevant TBI-related CDEs to current clinical assessment batteries. Data will be available to better understand the prevalence of TBI history in these populations and could be hypothesis generating for studying the pathophysiology underlying TBI as a risk factor for AD/ADRDs.

BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN): Comprehensive Center on Human and Non-human Primate Brain Cell Atlases (UM1 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Tuesday, July 27, 2021
Wednesday, November 10, 2021
RFA-MH-21-235

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to support a group of large-scale Comprehensive Centers that will adopt scalable technology platforms and streamlined sampling strategies and assay cascade to create comprehensive and highly granular brain cell atlases of human and non-human primates with an emphasis on human. The Centers are expected to characterize all brain cell types (neurons, glia, and other non-neuronal cells) at high-resolution. The overarching goal of the BICAN is to build reference brain cell atlases that will be widely used throughout the research community, providing a molecular and anatomical foundational framework for the study of brain function and disorders.

BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN): Coordinating Unit for Biostatistics, Informatics, and Engagement (CUBIE) (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Tuesday, July 27, 2021
Wednesday, November 10, 2021
U24
RFA-MH-21-237

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to support a Coordinating Unit for Biostatistics, Informatics, and Engagement (CUBIE) that will be composed of four components to establish respectively (1) a common sequencing data processing pipeline, (2) a common imaging data processing pipeline, (3) a comprehensive brain cell knowledge base, and (4) an engaging and outreach component to coordinate the research within and beyond BICAN. The overall goals of CUBIE are to (i) enable the exploration of large-scale brain cell atlas data and knowledge, and inspire research in brain function and disorders; and (ii) ensure research rigor and data reproducibility by making the data to be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, and the process transparent. An application is expected to propose only one of the above four respective components.

BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN): Specialized Collaboratory on Human, Non-human Primate, and Mouse Brain Cell Atlases (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA-MH-21-236

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to support a group of Specialized Collaboratories that will adopt scalable technology platforms and streamlined sampling strategies and assay cascade to create comprehensive and highly granular brain cell atlases in human, non-human primates, and mouse, in coordination and collaboration with other BICAN projects. In particular, the Specialized Collaboratories are expected to complement the Comprehensive Centers in BICAN with distinct capabilities, competencies, and research aims. The overarching goal of the BICAN is to build reference brain cell atlases that will be widely used throughout the research community, providing a molecular and anatomical foundational framework for the study of brain function and disorders.
