NEI Research for Low Vision and Blindness Accessibility Tools (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Optional)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-EY-24-003 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to stimulate translational efforts in developing and implementing accessibility devices or interventions that apply new technologies to address challenges faced by individuals living with visual impairment. Critical elements of applications include a clear set of milestones that support development and testing of the tool, device, or intervention proposed; multidisciplinary and collaborative teams that include individuals with lived experience; and a tractable dissemination plan. The overall goal of the program is to push the boundaries of innovation in technology development to address accessibility needs of individuals with visual impairment and create resources that will be made available to the community. This NOFO uses a milestone driven and phased mechanism of award. Initial technology development and feasibility activities (R61 phase) may transition to expanded research support (R33 phase) for validation, larger-scale feasibility, and effectiveness studies. All applications must address both R61 and R33 phases.

Nutrition Obesity Research Centers Research Resource Center (RRC) (P2C- Clinical Trial Optional)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-25-011 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications from institutions/organizations that propose to establish a Research Resource Center (RRC) for the NIDDK Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORC) Program. The NORC Program consists of eleven Centers across the nation that support and enhance the national research effort in nutrition and obesity through cutting-edge basic, clinical, translational, and health disparities research in nutrition science and obesity. In collaboration with the existing NORC program, the RRC will (1) provide administrative support for the entire NORC Program, (2) establish and curate a NORC Program website and centralized repository of research resources , (3) implement a multipronged approach to support and grow the early-to-midcareer research workforce, including individuals from diverse backgrounds, with a goal of maximizing national outreach and impact, (4) administer and manage a NORC Opportunity Program to address gaps and promote collaboration, and (5) manage a Pilot and Feasibility Program. This NOFO requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP), which will be assessed as part of the scientific and technical peer review evaluation. Applications that fail to include a PEDP will be considered incomplete and will be withdrawn.

Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (P30 Clinical Trial Optional)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-25-007 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications from institutions/organizations that propose to establish core centers that are part of an integrated and existing program of nutrition and/or obesity research. The Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORC) program is designed to support and enhance the national research effort in nutrition and obesity.NORCs support three primary research-related activities:Research Core services, a Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) program, and an Enrichment program. All activities pursued by Nutrition Obesity Research Centers are designed to enhance the efficiency, productivity, effectiveness, and multidisciplinary nature of research in nutrition and obesity.

NINDS Research Education Opportunities (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity PAR-24-200 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this NINDS 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.

ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Coordinating Center (UG3/UH3, Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-HG-24-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) is to solicit applications for the Coordinating Center (CC) of the ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) Consortium. In collaboration with the MAGen Sites funded by the companion NOFO (RFA-HG-24-004) the CC will explore the feasibility of developing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The CC will be responsible for implementing approaches to bring diverse teams together to enable synergistic and collaborative team science across the Consortium. Specifically, the CC will be responsible for technical, scientific, and administrative coordination activities to support the Consortium research activities including development of consortium wide plans, coordinated ELSI-informed ML/AI tool development and cross validation, and dissemination of the developed resources.

ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen) - Development Sites (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

1 month ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-HG-24-004 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. NHGRI aims to setup a research Consortium, ML/AI Tools to Advance Genomic Translational Research (MAGen), to collaboratively explore the feasibility of developing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools that can enhance the accuracy and precision of predicting how individuals with pathogenic genetic variants manifest disease. The primary goal is to identify both genomic and non-genomic factors influencing disease development in individuals carrying pathogenic genetic variants. The ML/AI tools will leverage existing multimodal genomic and non-genomic data and will be cross validated in genomic translational research settings to ensure the accuracy and generalizability of the tools for translational purposes. In addition, the Consortium will explore the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of integrating ML/AI tools into genomic medicine through the establishment of an ELSI Framework for their development, and through implementation of ELSI research projects.

Mentored Career Development Award to Promote Faculty Diversity in Biomedical Research (K01 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

1 month 1 week ago
Funding Opportunity RFA-HL-25-009 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications to enhance the pool of highly trained investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in research areas of interest to the NHLBI. The career development will take place under the guidance of an experienced mentor in the biomedical, behavioral or clinical sciences leading to research independence. It is targeted toward individuals whose basic, clinical, and translational research interests are grounded in the advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to solve problems related to cardiovascular, pulmonary, and hematologic diseases and sleep disorders in the general and health disparities populations. This NOFO invites applications from institutions with eligible faculty members to undertake special study and supervised research under a mentor who is an accomplished investigator in the research area proposed and has experience in developing independent investigators. This NOFO is designed specifically for candidates proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or a separate ancillary clinical trial. Applicants to this NOFO are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor. Applicants proposing a clinical trial or an ancillary study to an ongoing clinical trial as lead investigator should apply to the companion NOFO (see RFA-HL-25-008).
