The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to encourage community-engaged research that broadens the conceptualization of qualities of the environment that can support language development in children and that focuses on the development of novel measures of childrens language development. The overall goal is to build the number of strengths-focused, culturally and linguistically responsive, and generalizable toolsto further our understanding of childrens language development and/or impairment, and predictors thereof.

Many avenues of research are focused on improving our understanding of Lewy body dementia (LBD), including the disease's underlying biology and genetic risk factors. Environmental risk factors are also considered but are understudied. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support research that establishes causal links between a range of environmental factors and Lewy body formation.  These factors include exposures to environmental toxicants, light and noise, climate, and other external exposures.  This NOFO will support mechanistic, translational, and human subject studies to understand the relationship between environmental factors and LBD. It is expected that these studies will identify environmental risk factors related to the cause of LBD and its progression and their clinical relevance. Ultimately, these studies on LBD should accelerate mechanism-focused research to identify relevant pathways with potential to lead towards better and novel therapeutic interventions and quality of life. 

Expiration Date: Tuesday, July 13, 2027 NOFO Number: PAR-24-213 Release Date: Monday, June 24, 2024 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of the NINDS Alzheimers Disease and Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) program is to support of a cohort of new and talented, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds conducting AD/ADRD research. The program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds (e.g., see NIHs Interest in Diversity) from their mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees establish independent research programs in the AD/ADRD field.This FOA is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.
Expiration Date: Wednesday, September 8, 2027 NOFO Number: PAR-24-228 Release Date: Monday, June 24, 2024 Notice Type: PAR
(Reissue of PAR-18-490, PAR-21-234) The purpose of the NINDS Faculty Development Award to Promote Diversity in Neuroscience Research (K01) is to diversify the pool of independent neuroscience research investigators by providing junior faculty with research cost support, protected research time and career stage appropriate professional development mentorship in neuroscience research. Individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research are eligible for support under this award if they have doctoral research degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) and are in the first 3 years of a faculty tenure track or equivalent position at the time of application. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.
Expiration Date: Friday, October 18, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-NS-24-040 Release Date: Monday, June 24, 2024 Notice Type: RFA
Reissue of RFA-NS-19-038. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications to support the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Human Cell and Data Repository (NHCDR). The repository will maintain the current collection of fibroblast and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines as well as develop, characterize, expand source cells and iPSCs, and where appropriate, genetically modify new high-quality iPSC lines accordance with the NINDS mission. The NINDS Human Cell and Data Repository will distribute human cell resources broadly to qualified academic and industry researchers to advance basic and translational research in neurological disorders.
