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).

Reducing the Duration of Untreated Psychosis in the United States (R01)

Approximately 100,000 adolescents and young adults in the United States experience a first episode of psychosis (FEP) every year. The early phase of psychotic illness is widely viewed as a critical opportunity for indicated prevention, and a chance to alter the downward trajectory and poor outcomes associated with schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders.

Development and Application of PET and SPECT Imaging Ligands as Biomarkers for Drug Discovery and for Pathophysiological Studies of CNS Disorders (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites research grant applications from organizations/institutions that propose the development of novel radioligands for positron emission tomography (PET) or single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging in human brain, and that incorporate pilot or clinical feasibility evaluation in pre-clinical studies, model development, or clinical studies.

PHS 2016-02 Omnibus Solicitation of the NIH, CDC, FDA and ACF for Small Business Innovation Research Grant Applications (Parent SBIR [R43/R44])

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), invites eligible United States small business concerns (SBCs) to submit Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications.

Systems Science and Health in the Behavioral and Social Sciences (R01)

This FOA is intended to increase the breadth and scope of topics that can be addressed with systems science methodologies. This FOA calls for research projects that are applied and/or basic in nature (including methodological and measurement development), have a human behavioral and/or social science focus, and employ methodologies suited to addressing the complexity inherent in behavioral and social phenomena, referred to as systems science methodologies.

Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (D43)

The purpose of this FOA is to encourage applications for research training programs to strengthen the scientific capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to conduct HIV research relevant to the evolving HIV epidemic in their country.

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.

The Health of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (R15)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is committed to supporting research that will increase scientific understanding of the health status of diverse population groups and thereby improve the effectiveness of health interventions and services for individuals within those groups. Priority is placed on understudied populations with distinctive health risk profiles. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) focuses on sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex populations.

Products to Support Applied Research Towards Zero Suicide Healthcare Systems (R43/R44)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to support Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants that develop novel technologies for the purpose of advancing the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention's Zero Suicide goal of preventing suicide events (attempts, deaths) among individuals receiving treatment within health care systems. Zero Suicide is a commitment to the prevention of suicide among individuals served by health care systems and is also a specific set of health care strategies and tools intended to eliminate suicide events.

Early Stage Development of Technologies in Biomedical Computing, Informatics, and Big Data Science (R41/R42)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) that propose development of a broad base of innovative 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.
