Expiration Date: Saturday, May 8, 2027 NOFO Number: PA-24-181 Release Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2024 Notice Type: PA
The primary purpose of the NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Career Development Awards (K08) program is to prepare qualified individuals for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. This program represents the continuation of a long-standing NIH program that provides support and "protected time" to individuals with a clinical doctoral degree for an intensive, supervised research career development experience in the fields of biomedical and behavioral research, including translational research.
Expiration Date: Saturday, May 8, 2027 NOFO Number: PA-24-193 Release Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2024 Notice Type: PA
The purpose of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented, NIH-supported, independent investigators. This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from 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 to launch competitive, independent research careers.
Expiration Date: Saturday, May 8, 2027 NOFO Number: PA-24-179 Release Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2024 Notice Type: PA
The purpose of the NIH Independent Scientist Award (K02) is to foster the development of outstanding scientists and enable them to expand their potential to make significant contributions to their field of research. The K02 award provides three to five years of salary support and "protected time" for newly independent scientists who can demonstrate the need for a period of intensive research focus as a means of enhancing their research careers. Each independent scientist career award program must be tailored to meet the individual needs of the candidate.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 a separate ancillary clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by another investigator. Applicants proposing a clinical trial or an ancillary clinical trial as lead investigator, should apply to the companion FOA

Expiration Date: Wednesday, August 21, 2024 NOFO Number: RFA-AI-24-017 Release Date: Tuesday, April 23, 2024 Notice Type: RFA
The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to support research that 1) defines associations between variations in human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) genetic regions and immune-mediated diseases, 2) elucidates mechanisms underlying these associations with the goal of advancing therapeutic opportunities, and/or 3) validates association data in order to improve the predictive power of clinical disease screening.
Expiration Date: Wednesday, September 8, 2027 NOFO Number: PAR-24-110 Release Date: Friday, April 19, 2024 Notice Type: PAR
The objective of this funding opportunity is to support non-pharmacological interventions to promote sleep health, reduce sleep health disparities, and examine sleep as a modifiable factor to reduce health disparities for other health outcomes among populations that experience health disparities.
Research Category: HEAL Initiative, Pain Expiration Date: Friday, July 17, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-24-197 Release Date: Wednesday, April 17, 2024 Notice Type: PAR

The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to solicit applications for pilot projects to identify new druggable targets for pain within the understudied druggable proteome. Awards will support generation of preliminary data and/or tools around eligible understudied protein(s) listed in this NOFO. This NOFO is intended to jumpstart research on understudied proteins within the context of pain and pain management and provide applicants with sufficient funding to perform basic biochemical and/or biological work to further the characterization of understudied proteins to identify new druggable targets for pain. This NOFO is part of the NIH Helping to End Addiction Long Term (HEAL) initiative to accelerate the development of novel medications to treat all aspects of the opioid addiction cycle, including progression to chronic use, withdrawal symptoms, craving, relapse, and overdose.

Expiration Date: Saturday, October 5, 2024 NOFO Number: PAR-24-203 Release Date: Friday, April 12, 2024 Notice Type: PAR
This NOFO will solicit R01 applications that propose studies in animal, cell culture, and/or human tissue models to elucidate the mechanisms by which COVID-19 interacts with and/or modulates AD/ADRD-relevant phenotypes. Either the model itself or the experimental readouts will be required to incorporate AD/ADRD risk factors, pathologies, or relevant comorbidities. To this end, proposals can focus on one or more of the following: - Mechanistic studies that address how COVID-19 impacts CNS pathology and cognitive outcomes when AD/ADRD pathology is already present (for example, in a model of AD/ADRD). - Mechanistic studies that address how COVID-19 accelerates AD/ADRD pathology and cognitive deficits in a prodromal model (early phase, pre-symptomatic). - Mechanistic studies that address how COVID-19 predisposes for AD/ADRD and/or interacts with relevant comorbid conditions and risk factors (cellular mechanisms that could potentially increase the risk for future AD/ADRD).
Expiration Date: Wednesday, November 6, 2024 NOFO Number: PAR-24-198 Release Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2024 Notice Type: PAR
This initiative is designed to promote discovery of cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie brain blood vessels responses to passive anti-beta-amyloid immunotherapy that result in amyloid-related imaging abnormalities (ARIA). The goal is to establish an understanding of molecular mechanisms that can be targeted to protect the blood brain barrier (BBB), and thus the brain blood vessels, during therapeutic interventions that target beta-amyloid.
