Novel Assays to Address Translational Gaps in Treatment Development (UG3/UH3)

The overall goal of this initiative is to identify neurophysiological measures as potential assays for treatment development research. The FOA will support efforts to optimize and evaluate measures of neurophysiological processes that are disrupted within or across mental disorders in both healthy humans and in another species relevant to the therapeutic development pipeline. The initiative will support initial proof of concept studies aimed at identifying measures for potential development as preclinical assays for evaluating potential new drug and device therapies and their targets.

BRAIN Initiative: Non-Invasive Neuromodulation - New Tools and Techniques for Spatiotemporal Precision (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications in two related but distinct areas. The first area is in the development and testing of novel tools and methods of neuromodulation that go beyond the existing variations on magnetic or electrical stimulation, and that represent more than an incremental advance over existing approaches. The second distinct area that this FOA seeks to encourage is the optimization of existing electrical and magnetic stimulation methods.

Planning Grant for Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (D71)

The Fogarty HIV Research Training Program supports research training that strengthens HIV research capacity of institutions in low-and middle-income countries (LMIC). This FOA offers an opportunity for LMIC institutions to submit a planning grant application to participate in the Fogarty HIV Research Training Program. These applications must propose a plan to develop a research training program and the subsequent application that will be submitted in response to the companion D43 FOA (PAR-16-279).

Methods for Prevention Packages Program IV (MP3 IV) (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote multidisciplinary research programs that (1) devise optimal HIV prevention packages (combination interventions) for specific populations and (2) perform feasibility and acceptability studies to demonstrate that the proposed prevention package is acceptable to the target population and the study design is appropriate and feasible. This FOA is intended to encourage collaborations between behavioral and biomedical clinical specialists, epidemiologists, mathematical modelers, and clinical research specialists.

Building on High Impact Basic Neurobiology Through Assay Development: Advancing Tools for Therapeutic Discovery (R01)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications from institutions/organizations to develop novel, robust assays to reveal changes in neuronal and/or glial function. The goal is to adapt state-of-the-art measures of basic cellular processes or molecular events that are key mediators of nervous system function with the intent to probe mechanisms or perturbations in an unbiased and efficient manner.

Drug Discovery For Nervous System Disorders (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications directed toward the discovery and preclinical testing of novel compounds for the prevention and treatment of nervous system disorders.

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV/AIDS and Aging (R21)

This FOA invites applications proposing to study HIV infection, HIV-associated conditions, HIV treatment, and/or biobehavioral or social factors associated with HIV/AIDS in the context of aging and/or in older adults. Research approaches of interest include clinical translational, observational, and intervention studies in domestic and international settings.

AIDS Research Center on Mental Health and HIV/AID (P30)

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Division of AIDS Research (DAR) encourages applications for Center Core grants (P30) to support an HIV/AIDS Research Center (ARC). The ARC is intended to provide infrastructural support that facilitates the development of high impact science in HIV/AIDS and mental health that is relevant to the NIMH mission.

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.

Promoting Research in Basic Neuroscience (R01)

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research addressing fundamental questions in basic neuroscience. Proposed projects can address any area of neuroscience within the missions of the participating institutes and should focus on understanding the structure and/or function of the normal nervous system. While fundamental basic research often generates insights relevant to disorders of the nervous system, this FOA is not intended to stimulate research that is explicitly disease-related.
