Expiration Date: Thursday, November 19, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-23-294 Release Date: Monday, October 30, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of this NOFO is to invite Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21) applications that propose to study the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of human genetics and genomics. Applications may propose studies using either single or mixed methods. Approaches may include but are not limited to empirical qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as conceptual, legal, and normative analyses. Direct involvement of key stakeholders where appropriate is encouraged. Of particular interest are studies that explore the implications of new or emerging genomic technologies or novel uses of genomic information.
Expiration Date: Thursday, November 19, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-23-293 Release Date: Monday, October 30, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of this NOFO is to invite Research Project (R01) applications that propose to study the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of human genetics and genomics. Applications may propose studies using either single or mixed methods. Approaches may include but are not limited to empirical qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as conceptual, legal, and normative analyses. Direct involvement of key stakeholders where appropriate is encouraged. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP) as part of the application. Applications without a PEDP will not be reviewed.
Expiration Date: Friday, November 6, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-23-309 Release Date: Tuesday, September 26, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support novel and innovative research that examines and/or intervenes upon the underlying and multilevel causes, pathways, and factors adversely impacting the health and well-being of persons living with one or more disabilities among populations experiencing health disparities.
Expiration Date: Tuesday, June 16, 2026 NOFO Number: RFA-EY-23-001 Release Date: Tuesday, September 19, 2023 Notice Type: RFA
This FOA seeks applications for unique and innovative recording and/or modulation technologies that are in the earliest stage of development, including new and untested ideas that are in the initial stages of conceptualization. Some projects may aim to increase recording or modulation capabilities by many orders of magnitude, while others may aim to improve the precision and selectivity of recording or modulation (also referred to as stimulation, perturbation, or manipulation). A wide range of modalities are appropriate including acoustic, chemical, electrical, magnetic, and optical, as well as the use of genetic tools. Invasive or non-invasive approaches are sought that will enable large-scale recording and/or precise manipulation of neural activity, and that would ultimately be compatible with experiments in humans or behaving animals. Applications are encouraged from any qualified individual, including chemists, physicists, engineers, theoreticians, materials scientists, and others from fields not typically involved with neuroscience research. This FOA requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP), which will be assessed as part of the scientific and technical peer review evaluation. Applications that fail to include a PEDP will be considered incomplete and will be withdrawn.
Research Category: Pain Expiration Date: Monday, September 8, 2025 NOFO Number: PA-23-271 Release Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2023 Notice Type: PA

The purpose of this Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research award is to enhance the diversity of the health-related research workforce by supporting the research training of predoctoral students from diverse backgrounds including those from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research workforce. Through this award program, promising predoctoral students will obtain individualized, mentored research training from outstanding faculty sponsors while conducting well-defined research projects in scientific health-related fields relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers. The proposed mentored research training is expected to clearly enhance the individual's potential to develop into a productive, independent research scientist. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) does not allow candidates to propose to lead an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial, but does allow candidates to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a sponsor or co-sponsor.

Research Category: Pain Expiration Date: Monday, September 8, 2025 NOFO Number: PA-23-261 Release Date: Thursday, September 7, 2023 Notice Type: PA

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) will support students at institutions without NIH-funded institutional predoctoral dual-degree training programs. The purpose of the Kirschstein-NRSA, dual-doctoral degree, predoctoral fellowship (F30) is to enhance the integrated research and clinical training of promising predoctoral students, who are matriculated in a combined MD/PhD or other dual-doctoral degree training program (e.g. DO/PhD, DDS/PhD, AuD/PhD, DVM/PhD), and who intend careers as physician/clinician-scientists. Candidates must propose an integrated research and clinical training plan and a dissertation research project in scientific health-related fields relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers. The fellowship experience is expected to clearly enhance the individual's potential to develop into a productive, independent physician/clinician-scientist. This NOFO is designed specifically for candidates proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial, but does allow candidates to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a sponsor or co-sponsor.

Expiration Date: Friday, October 9, 2026 NOFO Number: NOT-OD-23-170 Release Date: Wednesday, September 6, 2023 Notice Type: Notice of Special Interest
The goal of this program is to provide support for a mentored research training experience for individuals with high potential to re-enter, re-integrate into, or re-train in an active research career, after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances as described below. This program encourages re-entry, re-integration, and re-training administrative supplement applications to existing NIH research grants to support full or part-time mentored research experiences by these individuals. The supplement grants are intended to provide these scientists an opportunity to update or extend their research skills and knowledge and prepare them to re-establish or revitalize their careers in basic biomedical, behavioral, clinical, translational, or social science research. It is anticipated that by the completion of the supplement support period, the re-entry/re-integration/re-training supplement awardee will be prepared to apply for a fellowship (F), career development (K) award, a research award (R), SBIR/STTR, or other types of independent research support.
Expiration Date: Monday, January 26, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-23-236 Release Date: Wednesday, August 30, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports the development of early-stage or new data repositories and knowledgebases as distinct and separate resources that could be valuable for the biomedical research community.
Expiration Date: Monday, January 26, 2026 NOFO Number: PAR-23-237 Release Date: Wednesday, August 30, 2023 Notice Type: PAR
The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support established biomedical data resources, that have demonstrated impact and have potential for continued benefit to the mission of one or more of the NIH Institutes and Centers participating in this announcement. Each application must: (a) deliver scientific impact to the communities served; (b) employ and promote good data management practices (as outlined by the FAIR Data Principles including adherence to the NIH desirable characteristics of repositories) and efficient operations for quality and services; (c) engage with the user community and continuously address their needs; and (d) support a process for data life-cycle analysis, long-term preservation, and trustworthy governance. The evaluation of the repositories will be based on their usage, utility, impact, quality of data and services, and efficiency of operations, community needs and engagement, trustworthiness of stewardship, and governance.
