NIH - Mobile Health: Technology and Outcomes in Low and Middle Income Countries (R21/R33 - Clinical Trial Optional)

Funding Opportunity ID: PAR-23-318

Upcoming deadlines: March 22, 2024; March 21, 2025; March 20, 2026

Abstract: The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to encourage exploratory/developmental research applications that propose to study the development, validation, feasibility, and effectiveness of innovative mobile health (mHealth) interventions or tools specifically suited for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) that utilize new or emerging technology, platforms, systems, and/or analytics. The overall goal of the program is to catalyze innovation through multidisciplinary research that addresses global health problems, develop an evidence base for the use of mHealth technology to improve clinical and public health outcomes, and strengthen mHealth research capacity in LMICs. This FOA provides support for up to two years (R21 phase) for technology development and feasibility studies, followed by a possible transition to expanded research support (R33 phase) for validation, larger-scale feasibility, and effectiveness studies. Transition to the R33 depends on the completion of applicant-defined milestones, as well as program priorities and the availability of funds. All applicants must address both the R21 and R33 phases.

NIH - Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Exploratory Cancer Immunology Projects and Technologies (ExCITe) 

Funding Opportunity ID: NOT-CA-24-016

Upcoming deadlines: Standard dates apply.

Abstract: Through this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) on Exploratory Cancer Immunology Projects and Technologies (ExCITe), the National Cancer Institute intends to encourage R21 applications proposing innovative high-risk/high-reward research projects, that test novel hypotheses or develop novel technologies, to advance our understanding of cancer immunology. Research projects should focus on fundamental areas of cancer immunology, including innate and adaptive immune responses, tumor-immune ecosystems and their dynamic interactions, the immune response to metastases, systemic immune networks, immunosurveillance, tumor immune evasion, or immunomodulation. Projects should be distinct in scope and focus from those supported through the traditional R01 mechanism. ExCITe studies may involve considerable risk but have the potential to lead to research breakthroughs or the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact in cancer immunology and cancer immunotherapy research.

JDRF, US – Development of Interventions to Modulate Immune Cell Trafficking in T1D

Upcoming deadlines: LOI –  17th January, 2024; Full application – 28th February, 2024

Amount: This program will award grants of up to $900k over 3 years. Application may include up to 10% indirect costs.

Eligibility: We welcome Letters of Intent (LOI) from those with demonstrated expertise, for example: immunology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, human beta cell biology, targeting reagent generation (antibodies, oligonucleotides, nanomedicines, small molecule inhibitors, etc.), expertise with animal models to assess migratory inhibition with an emphasis on drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics. 

Abstract: JDRF, the world’s leading non-profit organization with the mission to improve the lives of people with T1D by accelerating breakthroughs for T1D, aims to catalyze and support innovative studies that enhance beta cell health and function. A potential therapeutic strategy to stop the immune mediated destruction of beta cells is to limit immune trafficking to the islets, however this approach has not been extensively evaluated in human-relevant models. The identification and validation of novel strategies to target islet homing pathways while avoiding broad immunosuppression is of high interest for this funding opportunity. The goal of this funding opportunity is to accelerate the identification and validation of reagents that promote immune rebalance and the protection of beta cell function through modulating the trafficking of immune cells to the pancreatic islets. Proposals submitted for this opportunity should describe the preclinical or clinical development of therapeutic strategies targeting the trafficking of disease-relevant immune cell populations.
