Limited Competition: Alcohol-associated Hepatitis Clinical Network Integrated Treatment Clinical Trials Data Coordinating Center (U24 - Clinical Trial Required)

3 months 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-AA-24-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. he purpose of this limited competition Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support the Data Coordinating Center of the previously funded program on Late Phase Clinical Trials and Observational Studies in Alcoholic Hepatitis. The existing program of AH Clinical and Translational Network, hereafter termed Alcohol-associated Hepatitis Network, AlcHepNet, has been sponsored by the NIAAA since 2012 and was renewed in 2018. The purpose of this research program is to improve biomedical, psychosocial and quality of life outcomes for patients with advanced alcohol-associated liver disease. In the next cycle the program will consist of up to six Clinical Study Sites and one Data Coordinating Center to conduct an integrated treatment clinical trial that incorporates active treatment of AUD with treatment of liver disease. The targeted patient population will include severe alcohol-associated hepatitis (sAH) and decompensated alcohol-associated cirrhosis (deAC). Through this RFA, applications are sought for a Data Coordinating Center (DCC) to provide expert assistance to support the AlcHepNet network-wide common protocol clinical trial and local site ancillary studies on data management, statistical analysis, biospecimen collection, and logistical support under the U24 Resource-Related Research Projects Cooperative Agreements funding mechanism.

Research Training in Aging for Medical Students (T35)

3 months 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-25-009 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The primary goal of this Institutional Research Training Grant is to provide short-term training for medical students to obtain necessary aging research experiences and technical expertise and skills early during their education to encourage them to pursue careers in research. Other health professional students may also benefit from such short-term training and are eligible when research training is a minor part of, or nonexistent in, their doctoral program. This Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) does not allow appointed trainees to lead an independent clinical trial but does allow them to obtain research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.

Model Continuums of Care Initiative (MCCI) to Advance Health Equity and End Health Disparities Among Women and Girls in Racial/Ethnic Minority and Other Underserved Communities (U34 Clinical Trials Required)

3 months 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-AA-24-006 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this FOA is to support the planning phase of the Model Continuums of Care Initiative (MCCI) to Advance Health Equity and End Health Disparities Among Women and Girls in Racial/Ethnic Minority and Other Underserved Communities. MCCI is a multi-ICO dissemination and implementation science initiative to advance health equity and end health disparities in racial/ethnic minority women and girls of reproductive age. Specifically, the Model Continuums of Care Initiative will apply the latest dissemination and implementationscience approaches to significantly reduce the prevalence and impact of multi-morbidity among racial/ethnic minority women and girls of reproductive age at risk and living with mental health disorders, substance use disorders, chronic stress, cardiopulmonary diseases, common metabolic disorders (e.g., diabetes), cancer, and HIV/AIDS. This concept proposes a continuum of care approach that integrates preventive health services, primary care, behavioral health, integrative care, and cardiopulmonary and endocrine specialties to fully address health care needs in each of these domains, and to have maximum impact on the overall health and well-being ofracial and ethnic minority and other underserved women and girls. While MCCI is not a maternal health initiative, women and girls ages 15-44 yrs. are centered because it is during the early reproductive period, i.e., adolescence, that multimorbidity typically begins and rapidly progresses, setting the stage for multiple chronic debilitating conditions in later life. Special emphasis will be placed on using stakeholder partnerships, provider training, and infrastructure changes to improve access for subgroups of racial/ethnic minority women and girls who currently have the least access to high quality health care (e.g., racial/ethnic minority women and girls living in low resource settings).

Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes and Advance Health Equity in Rural Populations (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

3 months 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-NR-24-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this initiative is to support research to improve health and promote health equity in rural populations. Rural populations experience high rates of many causes of morbidity and disability, and high and increasing rates of premature death. Meaningful and sustained improvements in the health of rural populations require effective solutions to address the underlying causes. Applications responding to this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) should develop, adapt, or implement intervention strategies addressing social determinants of health (SDOH) to improve health and promote health equity in rural populations. This funding opportunity encourages studies that use a wide range of methodological approaches that enhance access to, and acceptability and effectiveness of, interventions in rural populations, such as community-engaged research approaches that build on the strengths of rural communities.

Limited Competition: Alcohol-associated Hepatitis Clinical Network Integrated Treatment Clinical Trials Clinical Centers (U01-Clinical Trial required)

3 months 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-AA-24-004 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this limited competition Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to leverage the established clinical infrastructure of the previously funded program on Late Phase Clinical Trials and Observational Studies in Alcoholic Hepatitis. The existing program of AH Clinical and Translational Network, hereafter termed AlcHepNet, has been sponsored by the NIAAA since 2012 and was renewed in 2018. In the next cycle the program will consist of up to six Clinical Study Sites and one Data Coordinating Center to conduct an integrated treatment clinical trial that incorporates active treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) with treatment of alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD). The targeted patient population will include severe alcohol-associated hepatitis (sAH) and decompensated alcohol-associated cirrhosis (deAC). Through this Request for Applications (RFA), U01 Collaborative Cooperative Agreement applications are sought to conduct an investigator-initiated common protocol integrated ALD-AUD treatment clinical trial and site-specific ancillary studies. Each Clinical Center application must consist of a multidisciplinary investigative team that includes a hepatologist and an addiction medicine specialist, and be comprised of primary and if necessary, subsites with a track record of successful enrollment in past clinical trials.
