Grants and Funding Opportunities

National Institutes of Health

NIMHD Social, Behavioral, Health Services, and Policy Research on Minority He...
Funding Opportunity RFA-MD-14-004 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit innovative social, behavioral, health services, and policy research that can directly and demonstrably contribute to the elimination of health disparities. Projects may involve primary data collection or secondary analysis of existing datasets. Projects that examine understudied health conditions; examine the effectiveness of interventions, services, or policies for multiple health disparity populations; and/or directly measure the impact of project activities on levels of health disparities are particularly encouraged.

NIMHD Basic and Applied Biomedical Research on Minority Health and Health Dis...
Funding Opportunity RFA-MD-14-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit innovative basic and applied research on fundamental biological mechanisms involved in disease conditions that disproportionately affect health disparity populations and therapies or interventions that can directly or demonstrably contribute to reducing or eliminating health disparities. Projects investigating disease/condition etiology, physiology, genetic risk factors, molecular pathways, gene-environment interactions, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine in health disparity populations are particularly encouraged.

Mid-life Reversibility of Early-established Biobehavioral Risk Factors (R01)
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-14-006 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is to solicit two-year Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to explore the potential for midlife plasticity of biobehavioral or psychological systems affected by early life disadvantage. In order to speed the development of novel intervention strategies, applicants are encouraged either to use existing human cohort data to identify circumstances that mitigate or exacerbate the effects of early adversity or to use human and/or animal models to test the feasibility of developing interventions aimed specifically at increasing malleability in adulthood of risk persistence mechanisms.
