Engineering Next-Generation Human Nervous System Microphysiological Systems (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research grant applications directed toward developing next-generation human cell-derived microphysiological systems (MPS) with improved fidelity to complex human brain, spinal, peripheral nervous system and/or sensory end organ circuit physiology in vivo, which will ultimately facilitate analysis of higher order functional deficits relevant to complex nervous system disorders.

Research Supplements to Promote Re-Entry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers (Admin Supp)

The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) and participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announce the continuation of the program for administrative supplements to research grants to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances. The purpose of these supplements is to encourage such individuals to re-enter research careers within the missions of all the program areas of NIH.

Change of Grantee Organization (Type 7 Parent)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) hereby notify grantee organizations holding specific types of NIH grants, listed in the full Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), that applications for change of grantee organization may be submitted in response to this FOA. This assumes such a change is programmatically permitted for the particular grant.

Innovative Basic Research on Adducts in Cancer Risk Identification and Prevention (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), encourages research projects focused on adducts to cellular macromolecules as indicators of exposures to cancer risk factors relevant to human populations. The priority is on projects that will focus on adductomic approaches, i.e., address some aspects of the totality of adducts. These projects should explore the basic aspects of adducts/adductomics that may have a potential utility in cancer detection, cancer prevention, and/or assessing cancer risks.

NIMH Research Education Mentoring Programs for HIV/AIDS Researchers (R25)

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.The over-arching goal of this NIMH R25 program is to support educational activities thatcomplement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs and advance the priorities outlined in the Office of AIDS Research (OAR) Annual Strategic Plan and the research program priorities of the NIMH Division of AIDS Research (DAR).

NIH Research Project Grant (Parent R01)

The NIH Research Project Grant supports a discrete, specified, circumscribed project in areas representing the specific interests and competencies of the investigator(s). The proposed project must be related to the programmatic interests of one or more of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) based on their scientific missions.

Pilot Services Research Grants Not Involving Interventions (R34)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage pilot research consistent with NIMH priorities for services research studies that are not immediate precursors to the development and testing of services interventions.While NIMH has moved to supporting all interventions research under FOAs that require use of an experimental therapeutics model, there is recognition that some important areas of mental health services research fall outside of that domain and have the potential to make significant contributions to advancing NIMH priorities and objectives.These areas in

Mental Health Research Dissertation Grant to Enhance Workforce Diversity (R36)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to enhance the diversity of the mental health research workforce by providing dissertation awards in all research areas within the strategic priorities of the NIMH to individuals from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences research. This two-year award supports the completion of the doctoral research project.

Role of Exosomes in HIV Pathogenesis (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate new research on the potential role of exosomes in cell-to-cell communication relevant to HIV transmission, innate or adaptive immune responses to HIV, or HIV pathogenesis.

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.
