National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Bridges to the Doctorate (T32)

Wed, 06/19/2019 - 10:37
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-300 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of the Bridges to the Doctorate Research Training program is to develop a diverse pool of scientists earning a Ph.D., who have the skills to successfully transition into careers in the biomedical research workforce. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) provides support to eligible, domestic institutions to develop and implement effective, evidence-based approaches to biomedical training and mentoring that will keep pace with the rapid evolution of the research enterprise. NIGMS expects that the proposed research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, mentoring, and career development elements to prepare trainees for careers that will have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) 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.

National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Bridges to the Baccalaureate (T34)

Mon, 06/17/2019 - 11:18
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-299 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of the Bridges to the Baccalaureate Research Training Program is to provide structured activities to prepare community college students to transfer to and complete a bachelor's degree in biomedical research fields. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) provides support to eligible, domestic institutions to develop and implement effective, evidence-based approaches to biomedical training and mentoring that will keep pace with the rapid evolution of the research enterprise. NIGMS expects that the proposed research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, mentoring, and career development elements to prepare trainees to bridge from the community college and complete the bachelor's degree in biomedical fields. This program requires partnerships between two-year post-secondary educational institutions granting the associate degree with four-year colleges or universities that offer the baccalaureate degree. This FOA 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.

Non-Invasive Neurostimulation in AD/ADRD (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Fri, 06/14/2019 - 09:43
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-298 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications for studies using non-invasive neurostimulation/neuromodulation in the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) or Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (ADRD). The goal of this FOA is to establish initial efficacy of neurostimulation/neuromodulation in the treatment of AD/ADRD or to refine these interventions for AD/ADRD patients. Multimodal or combination interventions are allowed, provided the focus and innovative component is neurostimulation.

Mechanistic Basis of Diffuse White Matter Disease in Vascular Contributions to Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID)(R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Fri, 06/14/2019 - 09:00
Funding Opportunity RFA-NS-19-039 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. (Reissue of RFA-NS-16-021, PAR-18-413) Diffuse brain white matter disease is highly prevalent in the elderly, and has been clinically associated with vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID) in both men and women. Diffuse white matter disease is thought to include a variety of pathologies including demyelination and/or fiber loss due to multifocal infarction and local ischemia. It is often accompanied by arteriosclerosis in deep penetrating arteries, multiple infarcts in the basal ganglia, brainstem or cerebellum. Though most commonly extending out from the periventricular surfaces, it may also occur in subcortical white matter. Diffuse white matter disease is typically detected in clinical settings as hyperintensity on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or signal loss on computed tomography x-ray (CT) scan; diffuse white matter disease can be detected histologically as well, for example in human pathology and in studies using animal models. Despite the prevalence and potential significance of white matter disease for cerebrovascular disease etiology and cognitive outcomes, much remains to be learned about the cellular and molecular causes, regional vulnerability, and progression over time. The physiological consequences of diffuse white matter disease on local axon and neural circuit function are almost completely unknown. The purpose of this FOA is to address some of the many gaps in knowledge of the biologic mechanisms of the commonly occurring, cerebrovascular disease and age-related diffuse white matter disease at the molecular, cellular, tissue and brain circuit level. The ultimate goal of this fundamental research is to inform future efforts to reduce the burden of illness due to age-related vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia.

"Clinical Trials" on a Chip: Tissue Chips to Inform Clinical Trial Design and Implementation in Precision Medicine (UG3/UH3 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 08:59
Funding Opportunity RFA-TR-19-014 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This FOA invites applications for projects designed to test the effectiveness of microphysiological systems (MPS), also called tissue chip, technology, for clinical trial frameworks by demonstrating their applied use in clinical trial planning and execution, addressing both safety and efficacy in late-stage preclinical studies. This approach is to provide evidence of the utility of tissue chip technology for precision medicine in informing trial design, establishing recruitment criteria and stratification of patient populations in identifying the best responders to candidate therapeutics.
