NIDCD Clinical Research Center Grant (P50)

The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) invites applications for Clinical Research Center Grants designed to advance the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and amelioration of human communication disorders. For this announcement, Clinical Research is defined as research involving individuals with communication disorders or data/tissues from individuals with a communication disorder.

Studies in Neonatal and Pediatric Resuscitation (R21)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages a wide range of collaborative research projects related to patient safety in the context of perinatal, neonatal and pediatric care both in routine hospital settings and in the intensive care units. The FOA welcomes applications related to (but not limited to): the epidemiology of various domains of medical errors and consequent patient harm; assessing the factors at various levels that contribute to such errors; and intervention strategies at individual, systems, and institutional-levels to help reduce and eliminate medical errors.

Advancing Interventions to Improve Medication Adherence (R21)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is being issued by the NIH Adherence Network through the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), with participation from multiple NIH Institutes. This FOA encourages Exploratory/Developmental Research Project Grant (R21) applications for research and development of interventions to significantly improve medication adherence in individuals.

Advancing Mechanistic Probiotic/Prebiotic and Human Microbiome Research (R01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is twofold: (1) to stimulate basic and mechanistic science that facilitates the development of effective probiotics or pre-/probiotic combinations of relevance to human health and disease; and (2) determine biological outcomes for the evaluation of efficacy of pre/probiotics in appropriate test systems and animal models. This FOA encourages basic and mechanistic studies using in vitro, in vivo, ex vivo, and in silico models that focus on prebiotic/probiotic strain selectivity, interaction, and function.

Characterization of the Adolescent Reproductive Transition (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications from the scientific community to support outstanding research in the area of puberty and the trajectory of sexual development. Research using new technologies and approaches is needed to fill knowledge gaps and advance understanding of normative sexual development in both males and females. It is anticipated that the findings of studies supported by this FOA will advance knowledge of puberty and the establishment of reproductive competence.

Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (CounterACT) Exploratory/Developmental Projects in Translational Research (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (CounterACT) exploratory/developmental translational research (R21). The mission of the CounterACT program is to foster and support research and development of new and improved therapeutics to mitigate the health effects of chemical threats. Chemical threats are toxic chemicals that could be used in a terrorist attack or accidentally released from industrial production, storage or shipping.

Multidisciplinary Research in Vulvodynia (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to indicate a continued interest in the topic area of vulvodynia or chronic vulvar pain of unknown etiology as an integral area of branch research.This announcement is intended to encourage new research applications in the exploration of etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapeutics in the field of vulvodynia. Applications utilizing multidisciplinary approaches and interdisciplinary investigative teams are of particular interest to advance this research agenda.

Studies at Periviable Gestation (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) focuses on projects that will provide an evidence base to guide therapies and treatment at periviable gestational age for both mothers and their infants.

Bioengineering Research Partnerships (U01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages bioengineering applications that will accelerate the development and adoption of promising tools and technologies that can address important biomedical problems.The objectives are to establish these tools and technologies as robust, well-characterized solutions that fulfill an unmet need and are capable of enhancing our understanding of life science processes or the practice of medicine.Awards will focus on supporting multidisciplinary teams that apply an integrative, quantitative bioengineering approach to developing technologies, and

Revision Applications for Validation of Mobile/Wireless Health Tools for Measurement and Intervention (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites revision applications from investigators and institutions/organizations with active NIH-supported research project awards to support an expansion of the scope of approved and funded projects to incorporate recent advances in mobile/wireless tools to validate these tools for measurement and intervention delivery. Revision applications for projects that do not currently employ mobile/wireless tools are welcome provided that the applicant team has the requisite scientific and technical expertise to employ and validate these tools.
