Research Centers for Improving Management of Symptoms Across Cancer Treatments (IMPACT) (UM1)

Wed, 10/18/2017 - 11:16
Funding Opportunity RFA-CA-17-042 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is associated with the Beau Biden Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative established to accelerate cancer research. Specifically, this FOA targets the following area designated as a scientific priority by the Blue Ribbon Panel (BRP): the Implementation of Integrated and Evidenced-based Symptom Management Throughout the Cancer Trajectory. The purpose of this specific FOA is to promote research on the implementation and evaluation of integrated symptom monitoring and management systems for use in cancer care delivery through a Research Consortium. This research will provide new insights and valuable evidence that can be used to guide efforts on a nation-wide basis to improve symptom control for cancer patients during treatment and survivorship.

Prevention and Treatment through a Comprehensive Care Continuum for HIV-affected Adolescents in Resource Constrained Settings (PATC3H) (UG3/UH3)

Wed, 10/18/2017 - 10:45
Funding Opportunity RFA-HD-18-032 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this FOA is to stimulate much needed research in an important area of public health significance: prevention of new HIV infections among adolescents at risk, and the identification of, linkage to and retention in care of, and long term viral suppression among youth living with HIV in low-to-middle income countries. These settings must have an HIV epidemic density defined by UNAIDS estimates as either a country 1) in which at least 200,000 people are living with HIV and the number has not decreased by more than 5% over the last 2 consecutive years of available data or 2) has an HIV prevalence of 3% or more. The UG3/UH3 Phased Innovation Awards Cooperative Agreement involves 2 phases. Funding for a UG3 phase will be used to demonstrate sufficient preparation, feasibility and capacity to meet foundational milestone targets specific to the work proposed. A UG3 project that meets its milestones will be administratively considered by NICHD and prioritized for transition to the UH3 award. Applicants responding to this FOA must address objectives for both the UG3 and UH3 phases.

Thu, 10/12/2017 - 12:39
Funding Opportunity RFA-EB-17-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This FOA solicits new theories, computational models, and statistical tools to derive understanding of brain function from complex neuroscience data. Proposed tools could include the creation of new theories, ideas, and conceptual frameworks to organize/unify data and infer general principles of brain function; new computational models to develop testable hypotheses and design/drive experiments; and new mathematical and statistical methods to support or refute a stated hypothesis about brain function, and/or assist in detecting dynamical features and patterns in complex brain data. It is expected that the tools developed under this FOA will be made widely available to the neuroscience research community for their use and modification. Investigative studies should be limited to validity testing of the tools being developed.
