Expiration Date: Thursday, May 8, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-22-179 Release Date: Thursday, July 14, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) and participating National Institutes of Health (NIH) Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICs) are issuing this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) to solicit applications proposing to strengthen the evidence base for preventive screening services where the evidence is lacking, of poor quality, conflicting, or the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined. This NOSI encourages the development and use of innovative and rigorous methods and approaches to close high priority evidence gaps to elevate screening services to a level suitable for a definitive grade or recommendation. The specific research interests of participating NIH ICs are detailed within.
Expiration Date: Thursday, May 8, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-22-178 Release Date: Thursday, July 14, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) and participating National Institutes of Health (NIH) Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICs) are issuing this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) to encourage applications proposing to test multilevel strategies and interventions to improve the uptake of evidence-based screening services across the lifespan and in populations including, but not limited to, those experiencing health disparities and those that are underserved. Studies addressing efficacy, effectiveness, dissemination and implementation research, as well as studies seeking to understand and address barriers to screening are encouraged. The specific research interests of participating NIH ICs are detailed within.
Research Category: HEAL Initiative, Pain Expiration Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-NS-22-095 Release Date: Wednesday, July 13, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest

The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to encourage the development and validation of animal models that recapitulate the phenotypic and physiologic characteristics of a defined pain type/indication and/or disease-associated pain condition and endpoints or outcome measures that can be used therein. The goal of this NOSI is to promote a significant improvement in the translational relevance of animal models and/or outcome measures that will be utilized to facilitate future development of non-addictive analgesics. Ideally, models or measures proposed for this NOSI would have the potential to provide feasible and meaningful assessments of efficacy following therapeutic intervention that would be applicable in both preclinical and clinical settings.

Expiration Date: Friday, August 8, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-MD-22-012 Release Date: Monday, July 11, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
This Notice of Special Interest is a reissue of NOT-MD-19-001 Notice of Special Interest in Research on the Health of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations. The reissue includes updates of programmatic interest for NHGRI, NIA, NIDCR, NIDDK, and ORWH, and updated Scientific Contacts.
Research Category: CounterACT Expiration Date: Friday, October 18, 2024 NOFO Number: PAR-22-209 Release Date: Wednesday, July 6, 2022 Notice Type: PAR Contact: Shardell M. Spriggs

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the early-stage development of therapeutics to mitigate the adverse health effects resulting from toxic chemical exposure. Chemical threats are toxic compounds that could be used in a terrorist attack or accidentally released from industrial production, storage or shipping. They include specific chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, pesticides, and pharmaceutical-based agents. The overall scope of this solicitation includes validation of therapeutic targets and preclinical characterization of lead compounds. The UG3 phase of this FOA supports target validation and characterization of initial lead compound(s); UH3 phase activities include candidate optimization and in vivo demonstration of activity and efficacy in relevant post-exposure models. At the conclusion of the overall UG3/UH3 funding period, projects are expected to deliver at least one well-characterized therapeutic candidate.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to the National Institute on Aging's (NIA) Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) program. The aim of this FOA is to support research that may lead to the development of innovative products and/or services with the potential to advance progress in preventing and treating Alzheimer's disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD) and/or caring for and treating patients living with AD/ADRD.
Expiration Date: Saturday, September 6, 2025 NOFO Number: PAS-22-196 Release Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2022 Notice Type: PAS
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to the National Institute on Aging's (NIA) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The aim of this FOA is to support research that may lead to the development of innovative products and/or services that have the potential to advance progress in preventing and treating Alzheimer's disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD) and/or caring for and treating patients living with AD/ADRD.
Expiration Date: Monday, October 6, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-22-154 Release Date: Tuesday, June 14, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The purpose of this NOSI is to solicit projects on preventive interventions that address cardiometabolic risk factors in populations that experience health disparities.
