Education and Health: New Frontiers (R01)

The goal of this funding opportunity announcement is to support research that will further elucidate the pathways involved in the relationship between education and health outcomes and in doing so to carefully identify the specific aspects and qualities of education that are responsible for this relationship and what the mediating factors are that affect the nature of the causal relationship.

Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of Genomic Research Regular Research Program (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to study the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of human genome research.Applications should propose well-integrated studies using either single or mixed methods.Proposed methods may include, but are not limited to, data-generating qualitative or quantitative approaches, legal, economic or normative analyses, or other analytical or conceptual research methodologies.

Multidisciplinary Research in Vulvodynia (R03)

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.

Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations (R01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to develop, adapt, and test the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in Native American (NA) populations. NA populations are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase their likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, mental illness, oral diseases, and HIV-infection.

Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP): Non- or Minimally-Invasive Methods to Measure Biochemical Substances during Neonatal and Perinatal Patient Care and Research (R01)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites bioengineering and biomedical scientists to collaborate in developing non- or minimally-invasive methods for measuring biochemical substances in connection with the care of perinatal patient populations. Lab-on-a-chip methods for rapid diagnostic or prognostic purposes are also encouraged.

NIH Pathway to Independence Award (Parent K99/R00)

The purpose of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented, NIH-supported, independent investigators. This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees to launch competitive, independent research careers.

Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (Parent K01)

The purpose of the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide support and protected time (three, four, or five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence.

Spatial Uncertainty: Data, Modeling, and Communication (R01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support innovative research that identifies sources of spatial uncertainty (i.e., inaccuracy or instability of spatial or geographic information) in public health data, incorporates the inaccuracy or instability into statistical methods, and develops novel tools to visualize the nature and consequences of spatial uncertainty.

Resource Program Grants in Bioinformatics (P41)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for Resource Program Grants in Bioinformatics for supporting the continued operation, improvement, and dissemination of databases, digital information, or software tools that are unique, and of special importance to research using animal models of embryonic developmental processes. Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with the Scientific/Research Contact listed below in Section VII to ensure that the proposed project reflects the objectives of this FOA and the programmatic interests of the NICHD.

Early Stage Development of Technologies in Biomedical Computing, Informatics, and Big Data Science (R01)

The NIH is interested in promoting a broad base of research and development of technologies in biomedical computing, informatics, and Big Data Science that will support rapid progress in areas of scientific opportunity in biomedical research. It is expected that this research and development is conducted in the context of important biomedical and behavioral research problems.
