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.

Research on Autism Spectrum Disorders (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research grant applications to support research designed to elucidate the etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and optimal means of service delivery in relation to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

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.

Research on Autism Spectrum Disorders (R03)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research grant applications to support research designed to elucidate the etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and optimal means of service delivery in relation to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

Multidisciplinary Studies of HIV and Viral Hepatitis Co-Infection (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to fill gaps in our understanding of a) the pathogenic interactions between HIV and hepatitis viruses, b) co-morbidities associated with HIV/hepatitis virus co-infection, and c) the effectiveness of interferon-free direct-acting antiviral drug regimens to treat HIV/HCV co-infection.

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.

BD2K Open Educational Resources for Skills Development in Biomedical Big Data Science (R25)

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.

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).
