Applicants may propose to supplement parent awards focused on bioethics or to add a component related to bioethics in a biomedical and/or health-related behavioral research study. The bioethics question, issue, or topic must be clearly articulated. Note that applications must be within the general scope of the parent award.
Expiration Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2024 NOFO Number: PAR-23-319 Release Date: Tuesday, December 12, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) participating Institutes and Centers (ICs), in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), invite applications for implementation research focused on addressing risk factors for common noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in World Bank-defined low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribal Nation populations in the United States. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports innovative approaches to identifying, understanding, developing, and implementingstrategies for overcoming barriers to the adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, tools, policies, and guidelines. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures into application are encouraged. Specifically, this FOA invites applications that propose implementation research targeted to reducing the risks of NCDs in the context of cities in LMICs and/or among AI/AN Tribal Nation populations in cities in the United States, with the potential to equip policymakers and practitioners with evidence-based strategies for prevention and/or management of NCDs among disadvantaged populations globally. In the context of this FOA, "cities" include urban centers, informal settlements and slums, and periurban areas.
Expiration Date: Thursday, February 1, 2024 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-24-032 Release Date: Monday, December 4, 2023 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The Office of Research on Womens Health (ORWH) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support research highlighting health inequities among women in the United States who are understudied, underrepresented and underreported (U3) in biomedical research.
Expiration Date: Friday, February 16, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-DA-24-042 Release Date: Tuesday, November 28, 2023 Notice Type: RFA
This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) seeks applications proposing a set of planning activities that will lay the groundwork for a scientific project aimed at integrating complementary theories and methods to 1) develop, validate, and apply cutting-edge tools and methods for minimally invasive, multi-dimensional, high-resolution measurement of behavior at the level of the organism, with synchronous capture of changes in the organisms social or physical environment; and 2) develop data science and computational methods that allow for integration of multidimensional behavioral and environmental datarepresenting multiple timescales, and that will establish of a conceptual and/or computational model of behavior as a complex dynamic system. Prospective projects are expected to be designed with the potential to integrate synchronously recorded neural data and/or inform existing models of neurobehavioral function, such as those developed with the support of the NIH BRAIN Initiative. The purpose of this R34 planning grant opportunity is to support planning and development of the research framework, design, and approach, including activities that will establish feasibility, validity, and/or other technically qualifying results that, if successful, would support a competitive application for a U01, or equivalent, NIH research award. This NOFO requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP), which will be assessed as part of the scientific and technical peer review evaluation. Applications that fail to include a PEDP will be considered incomplete and will be withdrawn. Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the NOFO instructions carefully and view the available PEDP guidance material.
Expiration Date: Saturday, March 2, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-MH-25-115 Release Date: Tuesday, November 28, 2023 Notice Type: RFA
The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) has emerged as a promising nonhuman primate model system to understand the primate brain. This has come about both from the realization that the behavior of the common marmoset is similar in some ways to human behavior and from recent demonstration of germline transmission of exogenous genetic information. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) solicits applications to expand existing colonies of the common marmoset for neuroscience research in the United States, and to support the care, breeding and distribution of genetically modified marmosets, and cryopreserved embryos and gametes created by NIH-funded research programs such as the NIH BRAIN Initiative Tools for Germline Gene Editing in Marmosets research consortium. Recipients s under this NOFO are expected to expand their current marmoset colonies to provide healthy, well-characterized animals that will be made available to the neuroscience research community, and to include a plan to accept genetically modified marmosets, and cryopreserved embryos and gametes for distribution to the research community. Recipients are also expected to participate in and provide health and genetic information to an NIH-Funded Marmoset Coordination Center to help the community understand the pedigree of individuals in the captive marmoset population and improve the genetic diversity of that population across multiple colonies.
Expiration Date: Saturday, March 2, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-MH-25-116 Release Date: Tuesday, November 28, 2023 Notice Type: RFA
This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) solicits applications to create a Marmoset Coordination Center. The awardee will be responsible for two separate but related activities. The first activity will be to become the repository for genomic, pedigree, and event records (date of birth, medical, reproductive history) for captive marmosets. The awardee is expected to use that information to help make breeding recommendations to maximize the health and genetic diversity of the marmosets in primate colonies. Applicants are encouraged to adopt the model used by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
Expiration Date: Friday, February 23, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-NS-24-029 Release Date: Tuesday, November 21, 2023 Notice Type: RFA
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the Office of the Director, National Institutes of Health (OD), intend to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for the conduct of scientific research utilizing data from expanded access (EA) to investigational drugs or biological products. These applications will target intermediate size populations of patients living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) who are not otherwise eligible for clinical trials for the diagnosis, mitigation, treatment, or cure of ALS ("intermediate EA protocol for ALS"). Providing the investigational drug or biological product under an intermediate EA protocol for ALS must not interfere with the initiation, conduct, or completion of clinical investigations that could support marketing approval, or otherwise compromise the potential development of medical products for the diagnosis, mitigation, treatment, or cure of ALS. Eligible applicants are clinical trial sites that participate in a phase 3 clinical trial supported by a United States (U.S.) small business concern (as defined in section 3(a) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S. C. 623(a)) that is also the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designated sponsor of a drug or biological product for ALS that is the subject of an Investigational New Drug Application (IND). This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in May 2022 with an expected application due date in June 2022. This FOA will utilize the U01 activity code.
