Mechanism for Time-Sensitive Research Opportunities in Environmental Health Sciences (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to support research in environmental health science in which an event has or will imminently occur that provides a limited window of opportunity to collect samples and data to support the assessment of exposures and human health impact. The goal of the program is to characterize initial exposures, collect human biological samples, or collect human health and exposure data in order to provide critical information to understand exposure-health outcome relationships, with the goal of providing data that will facilitate timely action to protect public health. The program also supports the use of innovative techniques (hazard identification, sensing and mitigation technologies) that are uniquely valuable for deployment at a time of disaster to inform our understanding of the human health impacts of the disaster. Research collected during this short window of opportunity is intended to serve as the foundation for analyses of longer-term health outcomes. (Funding of these analyses would not be appropriate for this mechanism, but through the traditional application process.) Resubmission applications are not permitted. Examples of appropriate studies can be found in the call text.

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): RFA-ES-19-011

Tobacco Use and HIV in Low and Middle Income Countries (R01): NIH

Tobacco Use and HIV in Low and Middle Income Countries (R21): NIH

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage research focused on tobacco use and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in low and middle income countries (LMICs). In particular, applications are encouraged that focus on the development and evaluation of tobacco cessation interventions tailored to HIV positive populations, including those with co-morbidities such as tuberculosis (TB), in low-resource settings in LMICs. This FOA provides funding for research planning, intervention delivery, and follow-up activities.

Closing date: November 1, 2019, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-18-023 (R01), PAR-18-022 (R21)

Extracellular Vesicles and Substance Use Disorders (R01): NIH

Extracellular Vesicles and Substance Use Disorders (R21): NIH

The purpose of this FOA is to encourage research projects that investigate the interplay between extracellular vesicles (EVs) and substance use disorders (SUDs).  In particular, NIDA is interested in the potential utility of EVs with respect to understanding neuroplastic mechanisms relevant to SUDs or as biomarkers or therapeutics.
Proposed projects are expected to meet the following two criteria: 1) the major thrust of the application should involve extracellular vesicles or EV biogenesis machinery; and 2) at least one aim or sub-aim should involve exposure to addictive substances, or analysis of samples from patients with substance use or SUDs. Addictive substances of interest include: nicotine, cocaine, stimulants, opioids, prescription drugs, cannabinoids, or use of multiple substances (including alcohol).  Applications focused solely on alcohol exposure should not apply through this FOA.

Closing date: January 21, 2020, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-17-250 (R01), PAR-17-242 (R21)

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects- TargetedBCP (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

This FOA solicits applications for research projects that use innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior. The goal is to support projects that can realize a meaningful outcome within 5 years. Applications should address circuit function in the context of specific neural systems such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication or homeostasis. Projects should link theory and data analysis to experimental design and should produce predictive models as deliverables. Projects should aim to improve the understanding of circuits of the central nervous system by systematically controlling stimuli and/or behavior while actively recording and/or manipulating dynamic patterns of neural activity.  Projects can use non-human and human species, and applications should explain how the selected species offers ideal conditions for revealing general principles about the circuit basis of a specific behavior.

Closing date: November 6, 2019; July 1, 2020; November 10, 2020 by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
