NIH – Psychological, Behavioral, and Neurocognitive-Focused Ancillary Studies to the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity in Humans Consortium (MoTrPAC) (U01)

Despite the well-established benefits of regular physical activity for health, well-being, and weight maintenance, few Americans meet established guidelines for physical activity, and decades of health promotion efforts have not led to significant population-level changes in physical activity. To close this gap between knowledge and behavior, we need to understand the drivers of physical activity […]

NIH – Request for Information (RFI): Challenges and Opportunities in Extracellular RNA Communication

RNA is now known to be exported from cells and play a role in newly discovered mechanisms of cell-to-cell communication. The Common Fund’s Extracellular RNA Communication program aims to discover fundamental biological principles about the mechanisms of exRNA generation, secretion, and transport; to identify and develop a catalogue of exRNA in normal human body fluids; […]

NIH/NIDA – Exploring Novel RNA Modifications in HIV/AIDS and Substance Use Disorders (R01, R21)

The description below is from the R01 version of this FOA: Recent evidence suggests that certain RNA modifications have important biological and disease functions in mammals.  Most covalent RNA modifications remain poorly characterized, although they are likely to influence RNA properties and functions such as stability, trafficking, localization, activity, and patterns of interactions with other […]

NIH – Uncovering the Causes, Contexts, and Consequences of Elder Mistreatment (R01)

This FOA invites applications proposing multidisciplinary research to examine the complex causes and consequences of elder mistreatment to inform the future design of mechanistically focused interventions for individuals at risk of mistreatment and mistreating. The mistreatment of the elderly is a serious and widespread public health problem with far-reaching implications. Elder mistreatment is comprised of […]

NIH/NIMH – Trials for Post-Acute Interventions and Services to Optimize Longer-term Outcomes (two opportunities)

These are new funding opportunities: Pilot Effectiveness Trials for Post-Acute Interventions and Services to Optimize Longer-term Outcomes (R34) (PAR-17-271) Effectiveness Trials for Post-Acute Interventions and Services to Optimize Longer-term Outcomes (R01) (PAR-17-272) Deadlines:  Standard dates apply

NIH/NIMH – Mental Health Family Navigator Model to Promote Early Access, Engagement and Coordination of Needed Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents (two opportunities)

Initiation of a Mental Health Family Navigator Model to Promote Early Access, Engagement and Coordination of Needed Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents (R01) (PAR-17-265) Pilot Studies to Test the Initiation of a Mental Health Family Navigator to Promote Early Access, Engagement and Coordination of Needed Mental Health Services for Children and Adolescents (R34) […]

NIH – Role of Myeloid Cells in Persistence and Eradication of HIV-1 Reservoirs from the Brain (R01, R21)

This description was taken from the R01 version of this FOA: Eradication of HIV-1 and achieving a sterilizing or functional cure has become a priority area in the AIDS field and at the NIH. The majority of the work that is ongoing has focused on studying T cell reservoirs and developing strategies for reactivation and […]

NIH/NIAMS – Mechanistic Ancillary Studies to Ongoing Interventional Clinical Trials (R01, R21)

This description was taken from the R01 version of this FOA: This FOA solicits grant applications that propose to conduct time-sensitive mechanistic studies ancillary to privately or publicly funded, ongoing interventional clinical trials. These parent projects have to be interventional clinical trials that can provide sufficient cohorts of well-characterized patients, infrastructure, data, and biological samples. […]

Thrasher Research Fund – early-career grants

The Fund recognizes that young investigators may find it difficult to remain in pediatric research because of a lack of funding. Therefore, the purpose of this program is to encourage the development of medical research in child health by awarding small grants to new researchers, helping them gain a foothold in this important area. The […]

National MS Society – pilot grant program

Researchers who have completed their post-doctoral training, and who are considered eligible by their institutions to apply for a research grant, are invited to apply. Individuals who are currently postdoctoral fellows or the equivalent, or who are graduate/medical students or residents, are not eligible for support under this program. Applicants are not eligible to apply […]
