NLM Research Grants in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Wed, 08/08/2018 - 01:52
Funding Opportunity PAR-18-896 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) supports innovative research and development in biomedical informatics and data science. The scope of NLM's interest in these research domains is broad, with emphasis on new methods and approaches to foster data driven discovery in the biomedical and clinical health sciences as well as domain-independent, reusable approaches to discovery, curation, analysis, organization and management of health-related digital objects. Biomedical informatics and data science draw upon many fields, including mathematics, statistics, information science, computer science and engineering, and social/behavioral sciences. Application domains include health care delivery, basic biomedical research, clinical and translational research, precision medicine, public health, biosurveillance, health information management in disasters, and similar areas. NLM defines biomedical informatics as the science of optimal representation, organization, management, integration and presentation of information relevant to human health and biology. NIH defines data science as the interdisciplinary field of inquiry in which quantitative and analytical approaches, processes, and systems are developed and used to extract knowledge and insights from increasingly large and/or complex sets of data.

Physical Activity and Weight Control Interventions Among Cancer Survivors: Effects on Biomarkers of Prognosis and Survival (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Tue, 08/07/2018 - 11:58
Funding Opportunity PAR-18-892 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages transdisciplinary and translational research that will identify the specific biological or biobehavioral pathways through which physical activity and/or weight control (either weight loss or avoidance of weight gain) may affect cancer prognosis and survival. Research applications should test the effects of physical activity, alone or in combination with weight control (either weight loss or avoidance of weight gain), on biomarkers of cancer prognosis among cancer survivors identified by previous animal or observational research on established biomarkers other than insulin/glucose metabolism, especially those obtained from tumor tissue sourced from repeat biopsies where available. Because many cancer survivor populations will not experience recurrence but will die of comorbid diseases or may experience early effects of aging, inclusion of biomarkers of comorbid diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease) and of the aging process are also sought. Applications should use experimental designs (e.g., randomized controlled clinical trials (RCTs), fractional factorial designs), and will include transdisciplinary approaches that bring together behavioral intervention expertise, cancer biology, and other basic and clinical science disciplines relevant to the pathways being studied.

Physical Activity and Weight Control Interventions Among Cancer Survivors: Effects on Biomarkers of Prognosis and Survival (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Elucidating the Role of the Autonomic Nervous System in Peripheral Metabolism and Metabolic Disease through the Application of Novel Tools and Methodologies (RC2 Clinical Trial Optional)

Tue, 08/07/2018 - 07:32
Funding Opportunity PA-18-891 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. NIDDK utilizes High Impact, Interdisciplinary Science (RC2) grants to support projects that will lay the foundation for new fields of investigation within the mission of NIDDK. The RC2 is envisioned to use an interdisciplinary approach to generate a research resource and/or foster discovery-based or hypothesis-generating science that can have a significant impact on the broader scientific community. This targeted FOA specifically seeks to generate scientific advancements addressing the role of the autonomic nervous system in the regulation of peripheral metabolism and its role in diabetes, obesity and related metabolic disease. Interdisciplinary teams may propose to develop resources in the form of novel tools or methodologies that when applied to the autonomic nervous system will contribute to elucidating its functional role in metabolism. Alternatively, teams may focus on novel approaches to address specific knowledge gaps or scientific questions that will significantly contribute to our understanding of role of the autonomic nervous system in metabolism with the goal of accelerating scientific progress in the treatment and prevention of metabolic disease.

Advancing Extracellular RNA (exRNA) Communication Research: Towards Single Extracellular Vesicle (EV) Sorting, Isolation, and Analysis of Cargo (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Mon, 08/06/2018 - 10:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-18-028 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The ability to isolate and analyze single EVs and their cargoes from human biofluids would provide a unique opportunity to understand the cell or tissue from which their respective exRNAs originate (heterogeneity) and, importantly, add significant depth to our understanding of exRNA communication. The overarching goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies and reagents towards isolating single EVs and to characterize the exRNA cargos associated with specific EV subpopulations based on cell of origin and their intended target cell. Shedding light on the diversity of exRNAs carried by EVs will allow for a better understanding of the precise role of exRNAs as signaling molecules for both physiological and pathophysiological processes, ultimately accelerating development of exRNAs as therapeutics and diagnostics.

Advancing Extracellular RNA (exRNA) Communication Research: Improved Isolation and Analysis of exRNA-Carrier Subclasses (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Mon, 08/06/2018 - 10:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-18-027 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Circulating extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) can act as endocrine signaling molecules, both locally and systemically, representing a novel paradigm in intercellular communication. ExRNAs are transported in body fluids in association with a variety of carrier vehicles of varying complexity including extracellular vesicles (EVs), ribonucleoproteins (RNPs), and lipoproteins (LPPs). These distinct carriers protect exRNAs from degradation and are thought to contribute to the biodistribution, uptake, and functional impact of exRNAs in target cells. The overarching goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop and evaluate innovative separation tools, technologies, and approaches that will enable the scientific community to rapidly and reproducibly sort complex biofluids into homogenous carrier populations of EVs, (including EV subsets), RNPs, and LPPs, and that also support high-throughput isolation and analysis of their extracellular RNA content and associated molecular cargo.

Limited competition: Data Management and Resource Repository (DMRR) on Extracellular RNA (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Mon, 08/06/2018 - 10:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-RM-18-026 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Limited Competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites an application from the currently funded NIH Common Fund-supported Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium (ERCC) Data Management and Resource Repository (DMRR) to support Stage 2 efforts of this program. The overall programmatic goal of the DMRR is to integrate the efforts of all funded components of the ERCC and serve as a community-wide resource for extracellular RNA (exRNA) standards, protocols, and data.
