Expiration Date: Saturday, October 8, 2022FOA Number: PAR-22-208Release Date: Monday, June 27, 2022Announcement Type: PAR
The purpose of the FOA is to support the structural characterization of protein species associated with Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (ADRDs) through the utilization of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) of proteins expressed in human tissue and cell sources. Studies in response to this RFA should also include the development of research tools and resources to further characterize/validate the protein species. This FOA is in response to the Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (ADRD) challenges outlined in the 2019 update to the National Plan to Address Alzheimer's Disease.
Expiration Date: Saturday, September 6, 2025FOA Number: PAS-22-197Release Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2022Announcement Type: PAS
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, 2025FOA Number: PAS-22-196Release Date: Tuesday, June 21, 2022Announcement 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: Friday, September 16, 2022FOA Number: RFA-NS-23-001Release Date: Thursday, June 16, 2022Announcement Type: RFA
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications for pragmatic clinical trials to decrease or prevent negative clinical outcomes due to vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID), including locally representative NIH defined populations that experience health disparities in dementia. Examples of responsive projects and interventions that affect VCID outcomes include, but are not limited to, blood pressure control implementation; lifestyle modification using aerobic exercise; and early detection and treatment of VCID risk factors.
Expiration Date: Saturday, June 7, 2025FOA Number: PAR-22-181Release Date: Thursday, June 9, 2022Announcement Type: PAR
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R01 grant applications that propose independent research projects that are within the scientific mission areas of the ?participating NIH Institutes or Centers. This program is intended to support New Investigators and At-Risk Investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the health-related sciences.Investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups (e.g., see NOT-OD-20-031, Notice of NIHs Interest in Diversity), are eligible to apply. Investigators from categories A and B are particularly encouraged to work with their institutions to apply
Expiration Date: Thursday, August 11, 2022FOA Number: RFA-NS-22-051Release Date: Monday, June 6, 2022Announcement Type: RFA
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for a Data Management and Coordinating Center (DMCC) to provide infrastructure, data management, and clinical research support for a new network of clinical sites that provide diagnostic services for undiagnosed diseases. The new Network is intended to sustain some of the key research activities currently performed by the Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN), an NIH Common Fund program that was established in 2013 and will sunset in 2023. The DMCC will coordinate clinical sites that apply to join the new Network beginning in FY2023 as Diagnostic Centers of Excellence (DCoEs) through a related Resource Access Program (X01) mechanism. The DMCC will support the DCoEs and the NIH intramural Undiagnosed Diseases Program (UDP) by coordinating trans-network research activities, with services managed across three Cores: 1) Administrative Core; 2) Data Management Core, and 3) Clinical Research Support Core.
Expiration Date: Thursday, April 6, 2023FOA Number: PA-22-178Release Date: Thursday, June 2, 2022Announcement Type: PA
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) invites eligible United States small businesses to submit Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications. United States small businesses that have the research capabilities and technological expertise to contribute to the R and D mission(s) of the NIH awarding components identified in this FOA are encouraged to submit STTR grant applications in response to identified topics (see PHS 2022-2 SBIR/STTR Program Descriptions and Research Topics for NIH, CDC, and FDA). This Parent Funding Opportunity Announcement does not accept clinical trials.
Expiration Date: Thursday, April 6, 2023FOA Number: PA-22-176Release Date: Thursday, June 2, 2022Announcement Type: PA
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), invites eligible United States small businesses to submit Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications. United States small businesses that have the research capabilities and technological expertise to contribute to the R and D mission(s) of the NIH, CDC, and FDA awarding components identified in this FOA are encouraged to submit SBIR grant applications in response to identified topics (see PHS 2022-2 SBIR/STTR Program Descriptions and Research Topics for NIH, CDC, and FDA.

Expiration Date: Saturday, September 14, 2024FOA Number: RFA-NS-22-039Release Date: Wednesday, May 25, 2022Announcement Type: RFA
This FOA will support integrated, interdisciplinary research teams from prior BRAIN technology and/or integrated approaches teams, and/or new projects from the research community that focus on examining circuit functions related to behavior, using advanced and innovative technologies. The goal will be to support programs with a team science approach that can realize meaningful outcomes within 5-plus years. Awards will be made for 5 years, with a possibility of one competing renewal. Applications should address overarching principles of circuit function in the context of specific neural systems underlying sensation, perception, emotion, motivation, cognition, decision-making, motor control, communication, or homeostasis. Applications should incorporate theory-/model-driven experimental design and should offer predictive models as deliverables. Applications should seek to understand circuits of the central nervous system by systematically controlling stimuli and/or behavior while actively recording and/or manipulating relevant dynamic patterns of neural activity and by measuring the resulting behaviors and/or perceptions. Applications are expected to employ approaches guided by specified theoretical constructs, and are encouraged to employ quantitative, mechanistic models where appropriate. Applications will be required to manage their data and analysis methods in a prototype framework that will be developed and used in the proposed U19 project and exchanged with other U19 awardees for further refinement and development. Model systems, including the possibility of multiple species ranging from invertebrates to humans, can be employed and should be appropriately justified. Budgets should be commensurate with multi-component teams of research expertise including neurobiologists, statisticians, physicists, mathematicians, engineers, computer scientists, and data scientists, as appropriate - that seek to cross boundaries of interdisciplinary collaboration.

This FOA will support integrated, interdisciplinary research teams that focus on examining dynamic circuit functions related to behavior, using advanced and innovative technologies.

Applicants proposing to include human subjects with invasive neural recording must apply to the companion FOA, RFA-NS-XX-XXX.
