Expiration Date: Wednesday, October 1, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-23-031 Release Date: Thursday, December 1, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The overarching goal of this program is to enhance the retention of investigators facing critical life events who are transitioning from mentored career development awards to research independence and to minimize departures from biomedical research workforce. This supplement program is intended to ensure continuity of research among recipients of mentored career development (K) awards by providing supplemental research support to help sustain the investigators research during a period in which the PD/PI experiences critical life events which have the potential to impact research progress or potential productivity. Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project.
Expiration Date: Thursday, January 8, 2026 NOFO Number: NOT-AI-23-013 Release Date: Friday, November 25, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The purpose of this Notice is to announce that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) encourage new applications to advance research activities relevant to the five strategic priorities identified in the recently released NIH Strategic Plan for Tickborne Disease Research:
Expiration Date: Monday, September 8, 2025 NOFO Number: PAR-22-195 Release Date: Monday, October 3, 2022 Notice Type: PAR
The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The NIH INvestigation of Co-occurring conditions across the Lifespan to Understand Down syndromE (INCLUDE) Project seeks to improve health and quality-of-life for individuals with Down syndrome (DS). As part of the INCLUDE Project, NIH is interested in expanding and diversifying the skilled DS clinical research workforce. The intent of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications that develop creative and innovative short courses to train the next generation of DS researchers in state-of-the-art clinical research skills that will improve the understanding of the co-occurring clinical features in DS and support development of new treatments for health conditions experienced by those with DS.
Expiration Date: Thursday, October 3, 2024 NOFO Number: NOT-AT-23-003 Release Date: Monday, September 26, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is aimed at revolutionizing neuroscience through development and application of innovative technologies to map neural circuits, monitor and modulate their activity, and understand how they contribute to thoughts, sensations, emotions, and behaviors. NIH has issued a variety of Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) that will support projects that apply technologies to understand neural circuit function in the context of specific circuits, resulting in a diverse portfolio of research into the fundamental biology of nervous system function.
Expiration Date: Friday, September 13, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-DA-23-039 Release Date: Tuesday, September 20, 2022 Notice Type: RFA
This FOA solicits the development of theories, computational models, and analytical tools to derive understanding of brain function from complex neuroscience data. Proposed projects could develop tools to integrate existing theories or formulate new theories; conceptual frameworks to organize or fuse data to infer general principles of brain function; multiscale/multiphysics models to generate new testable hypotheses to design/drive future experiments; new analytical methods to either support or refute a stated hypothesis about brain function. It is expected that the tools developed under this FOA will be made widely available to the neuroscience research community for their use and modification. Investigative studies should be limited to model parameter estimation and/or validity testing of the tools being developed.
Expiration Date: Thursday, May 8, 2025 NOFO Number: NOT-HD-22-043 Release Date: Monday, September 19, 2022 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to stimulate dissemination and implementation research on innovative approaches built on evidence-based findings from foundational research on factors that contribute to maternal morbidity and mortality (MMM). This NOSI will support the development and implementation of strategies to inform integrated efforts involving policy and practice changes to improve preconception, pregnancy, perinatal, and postpartum care and advance maternal health and maternal health equity.
Research Category: HEAL Initiative, Pain Expiration Date: Saturday, April 5, 2025 NOFO Number: RFA-NS-23-006 Release Date: Thursday, September 15, 2022 Notice Type: RFA

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) aims to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis by supporting the development of therapies and technologies directed at enhanced pain management through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. This FOA is focused on applications directed at improving pain treatment, including the development of new non-addictive medications and devices and objective pain measurement. In addition, NIH is interested in new screening tools and models focused specifically on pain and development of pain therapies.

Research Category: HEAL Initiative, Pain Expiration Date: Saturday, April 5, 2025 NOFO Number: RFA-NS-23-007 Release Date: Thursday, September 15, 2022 Notice Type: RFA

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) aims to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis by supporting the development of therapies and technologies directed at enhanced pain management through the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program. This FOA is focused on applications directed at improving pain treatment, including the development of new non-addictive medications and devices and objective pain measurement. In addition, NIH is interested in new screening tools and models focused specifically on pain and development of pain therapies.

Expiration Date: Monday, September 8, 2025 NOFO Number: PAR-22-242 Release Date: Thursday, September 8, 2022 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to encourage collaborations between the life and physical sciences that: 1) apply a multidisciplinary bioengineering approach to the solution of a biomedical problem; and 2) integrate, optimize, validate, translate or otherwise accelerate the adoption of promising tools, methods, and techniques for a specific research or clinical problem in basic, translational, or clinical science and practice. An application may propose design-directed, developmental, discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven research and is appropriate for small teams applying an integrative approach to increase our understanding of and solve problems in biological, clinical, or translational science.
