Funding Opportunity RFA-AT-19-005 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages UG3/UH3 phased cooperative research applications to conduct an efficient, large-scale pragmatic trial or implementation science study to evaluate the impact of and how best to implement acupuncture treatment for chronic low back pain into health care delivery. Awards made under this FOA will initially support a one-year milestone-driven planning phase (UG3), with possible transition to an implementation phase (UH3). UG3 projects that have met the scientific milestone and feasibility requirements may transition to the UH3 phase. The UG3/UH3 application must be submitted as a single application, following the instructions described in this FOA. Trials must be conducted across two or more health care systems (HCS) and must be conducted as part of the NIH HCS Research Collaboratory supported through the NIH Common Fund. (See https://commonfund.nih.gov/hcscollaboratory). The NIH HCS Research Collaboratory Program has established a Collaboratory Coordinating Center (CCC) that is providing national leadership and technical expertise in all aspects of research with HCS. After awards are made by NIH, the CCC (http://rethinkingclinicaltrials.org/about-nih-collaboratory/) and the NIH will work with successful awardees from this FOA to facilitate the planning and rapid execution of high impact trials that conduct research studies in partnerships with health care delivery systems.

HEAL Initiative Limited Competition: Behavioral Research to Improve MAT: Ancillary Studies to Enhance Behavioral or Social Interventions to Improve Adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders (R01, Clinical Trials Optional)

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 09:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-AT-19-007 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications to expand research activities funded under RFA-AT-18-002 and RFA-DA-18-005 on the impact of interventions designed to improve adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) or linking individuals with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) who receive naloxone for the reversal of overdose to MAT within the context of states use of the SAMHSA Opioid STR grant funds authorized under the 21st Century Cures Act. Expansion of research activities should increase the generalizability of findings to allow for more rapid dissemination and implementation of successful interventions. Examples of additional activities include but are not limited to adding recruitment/study sites, increasing the overall sample size, targeting under-represented populations, and adjusting for longer follow-up.

HEAL Initiative: Antenatal Opioid Exposure Longitudinal Study Consortium (PL1 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

Mon, 12/10/2018 - 09:38
Funding Opportunity RFA-HD-19-025 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) invites applications from investigators willing to participate with the NICHD + others for an observational clinical study of infants born to mothers who are exposed to prenatal opioids. The public health opioid epidemic has a significant effect on infants who were exposed prenatally to opioids. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is intended to support multi-site clinical research devoted to investigating the impact of prenatal opioid exposure on infant outcomes as well as neuroimaging in opioid exposed versus unexposed newborns. The objective of this program is to advance scientific research that facilitates knowledge and care for infants exposed in utero to opioids. This program benefits the public: infants and families with opioid exposure and their health care providers. This FOA supports trials that require participation of two or more collaborative sites for completion of the study. Accordingly, the collaborating sites develop a specific protocol across the sites and are organized to increase sample size, accelerate recruitment, or increase sample diversity and representation. Each site has its own Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) and each consortium includes a mechanism for coordination, implementation and monitoring of the protocol across sites, quality control, database management, statistical analysis, and reporting. Public Law 115-141, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 (signed on March 23, 2018) includes a requirement that grantees from for-profit applicant organizations must provide a 50% match and/or in-kind contribution of all federally awarded dollars under the grant award (direct costs, as well as facilities and administrative costs) for research related to opioid addiction, development of opioid alternatives, pain management and addiction treatment.

Funding Opportunity RFA-EB-18-003 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support preclinical development and demonstration of safe, effective, and non-addictive device-based technologies and approaches to treat pain. The goal of the program is to demonstrate treatment using credible neural targets for device-based interventions and/or diagnostics for pain, building upon the latest mechanistic knowledge about the anatomy and physiology of central, spinal, and peripheral pathways involved in pain. Awarded activities will facilitate the translation of new devices up to the stage of readiness for first in human (FIH) clinical trials by overcoming key challenges identified during preliminary proof-of-concept studies. The scope of the program includes technology development and optimization, and studies to prepare for approvals for human use. This is a milestone-driven cooperative agreement program and will involve participation of NIH program staff in the development of the project plan and monitoring of research progress.
