This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) seeks to support research aimed at holistic understanding of inter-individual or between-person differences in human pain conditions, focusing on Whole Person Health and enhancing pain treatment and management strategies towards personalized pain medicine. The goal of this NOFO is to support studies that focus on the collection of clinical and/or preclinical data to enable evidence-based modeling and understanding of inter-individual differences and/or heterogeneity of pain occurring with use of pain therapy/management, or with conditions such as a second pain condition, a comorbid health condition, a comorbid mental health condition, or conditions of use / misuse of opioids, alcohol or other substances. Applicants are encouraged to develop and implement novel, multidisciplinary research approaches, and include investigators with complementary expertise to fulfill the project and program goals. Input from patients and caregivers on the goals of the project is highly encouraged. Rigorous data-driven and evidence-based research approaches supported under this NOFO are expected to provide better understanding of biological and/or biopsychosocial underpinnings of inter-individual differences, heterogeneity, and stratification of persons with lived pain experience, which would accelerate the development of evidence-based solutions toward precision pain medicine.
This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications for basic, translational, and clinical research projects that propose to study the role of environmental stress on the health inequities in Alzheimer’s Disease Related Dementias (ADRD), including Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), Vascular Contributions to Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID), and Mixed-Etiology Dementia (MED). Environmental stressors include but are not limited to heat, crowding, air pollution, noise, violence, and psychosocial stress. Many of these environmental stressors are more prevalent in rural and urban disadvantaged communities which also have a higher risk for ADRD. Thus, there is a need to identify environmental stressors that impact health inequities in ADRD and to determine the mechanistic underpinnings of this stress. This NOFO will support mechanistic, translational, and human subject studies to understand the relationship between environmental stressors and health inequities in ADRD. It is expected that these studies will identify environmental stressors related to health inequities in ADRD and their clinical relevance. Ultimately, these studies should accelerate research towards better therapeutic interventions and quality of life.
