BRAIN Initiative: Non-Invasive Neuromodulation - Mechanisms and Dose/Response Relationships for Targeted CNS Effects (R01)

The focus of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to better understand how existing non-invasive neuromodulation devices affect brain circuity. This information should shed light on dose/response relationships that could be used for neuroscience applications and clinical interventions.

Opportunities for Collaborative Research at the NIH Clinical Center (U01)

The goal of this program is to support collaborative translational research projects aligned with NIH efforts to enhance the translation of basic biological discoveries into clinical applications that improve health.It encourages high quality science demonstrating the potential to result in understanding an important disease process or lead to new therapeutic interventions, diagnostics, or prevention strategies within the research interests and priorities of the participating NIH Institutes/Centers (ICs).

Revision Applications for Validation of Mobile/Wireless Health Tools for Measurement and Intervention (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites revision applications from investigators and institutions/organizations with active NIH-supported research project awards to support an expansion of the scope of approved and funded projects to incorporate recent advances in mobile/wireless tools to validate these tools for measurement and intervention delivery. Revision applications for projects that do not currently employ mobile/wireless tools are welcome provided that the applicant team has the requisite scientific and technical expertise to employ and validate these tools.

Pre-application: Opportunities for Collaborative Research at the NIH Clinical Center (X02)

The goal of this program is to support collaborative translational research projects aligned with NIH efforts to enhance the translation of basic biological discoveries into clinical applications that improve health.It encourages high quality science demonstrating the potential to result in understanding an important disease process or lead to new therapeutic interventions, diagnostics, or prevention strategies within the research interests and priorities of the participating NIH Institutes/Centers (ICs).

The Health of Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Populations (R01)

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.

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Individual Predoctoral Fellowship to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Parent F31 - Diversity)

The purpose of this Kirschstein-NRSA predoctoral fellowship (F31) award is to enhance the diversity of the health-related research workforce by supporting the research training of predoctoral students from population groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research workforce, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and those with disabilities.

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).

Mobile Health: Technology and Outcomes in Low and Middle Income Countries (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage exploratory/developmental research applications that propose to conduct research to develop or adapt innovative mobile health (mHealth) technology specifically suited for low and middle income countries (LMICs) and determine the health-related outcomes associated with implementation of the technology. Of highest interest are innovative, well-designed multidisciplinary projects that aim to generate generalizable knowledge for the field.

Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) (S06)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage grant applications for new or continued Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH). The NARCH program supports opportunities for conducting research and career enhancement to meet the health needs of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities and the scientists conducting research on the health needs of these communities.
