Environmental Risks for Psychiatric Disorders: Biological Basis of Pathophysiology (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Mon, 09/30/2019 - 07:39
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-385 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research to understand the biological basis by which environmental exposures alter brain and behavioral functioning to increase risk for psychiatric disorders with onset in late-childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. The R21 grant mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects that are high-risk and/or use novel approaches with potential for significant impact. Investigations that further advance our understanding of psychiatric conditions where there is less evidence of an environmental exposure link are of particular interest. A range of approaches are encouraged, from mechanistic experiments using whole organism models or in vitro and in vivo systems to human studies that add new data collection activities and/or make use of extant data or biospecimens. Investigations that further advance our understanding of the joint contribution of genes and environment in the risk for psychiatric disorders are welcomed. Applications should address either categorically defined psychiatric diagnoses and/or continuous traits expressed in the general population. Applicants are encouraged to propose studies that consider co-occurring psychiatric conditions and potential shared etiologies. It is anticipated that knowledge gained from the research supported by this FOA will inform the development of improved intervention, prevention and/or therapeutic strategies. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant (R21) award mechanism and runs in parallel with another FOA, PAR-20-NNN, which encourages applications under the R01 mechanism.

Applicants are encouraged to propose studies that consider co-occurring psychiatric conditions and potential shared etiologies. It is anticipated that knowledge gained from the research supported by this FOA will inform the development of improved intervention, prevention and/or therapeutic strategies. This FOA will use the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism and runs in parallel with another FOA, PAR-20-NNN, which encourages applications under the R21 mechanism.

Limited Competition for the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP) in Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal (UM1 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Fri, 09/27/2019 - 10:58
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-19-505 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites an application from the current awardee institution of the Accelerating Medicines Partnership in Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal (AMP T2D KP). The AMP T2D program is a collaborative partnership between the NIH, pharmaceutical companies, and nonprofit organizations to develop new models for identifying and validating promising biological targets to serve as biomarkers and/or for drug discovery (www.nih.gov/research-training/accelerating-medicines-partnership-amp/type-2-diabetes). This is a one-time FOA to provide funds to the AMP T2D KP to continue the development of the web portal and underlying, curated knowledge base; as well as to become the flagship resource encompassing the myriad types of data and information that provides an understanding of the biological heterogeneity in patients with T2D and its complications. In its next five-year period, the AMP T2D KP will be expected to expand the KPs data sets and traits, import additional data types, deploy additional analytical and visualization tools, and increase its utility to a more diverse user base. To support the conduct of these studies, the AMP T2D KP will coordinate, support, and work with companion Functional Genomic Project awardees (RFA-DK-19-012) to form a Consortium. The AMP T2D KP will also oversee an opportunity pool of funds to solicit collaborative projects to accomplish the objectives of the Consortium.

Understanding the Functional Contributions and Mechanisms of Type 2 Diabetes Disease-associated Variants (UM1 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Fri, 09/27/2019 - 10:58
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-19-012 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications from integrative teams and individual investigators for large-scale complex multi-disciplinary Functional Genomics Projects (FGPs) to determine the contributions and mechanisms underlying the contribution of risk-associated variants and their downstream effector transcripts for type 2 diabetes (T2D). The intent is to generate knowledge and tools to enable the identification of putative biomarkers and therapeutic targets by future efforts. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and other genomic studies of T2D and its complications have found many variants that are statistically associated with disease risk, disease protection, progression to complications, or other traits. However, such studies do not show which variants in genomic elements cause these effects or how they result in differences in function. Applications submitted to this RFA will systematically identify causal variants and effector transcripts associated with all known T2D risk variants, verify the role of downstream effector transcripts, build network models that explain their role(s) in T2D and its complications, and identify key readouts and modulation points in these networks. Data, tools, and reagents generated by these projects will be released rapidly to facilitate more in-depth study by the broad scientific community. Awardees to this solicitation will form a Consortium with the Accelerating Medicines Partnership in Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal awardee (AMP T2D KP; RFA-DK-19-505) to accomplish collective goals.

Low Cost Detection of Cognitive Decline in Clinical Settings (R01 Clinical Trial Required)

Fri, 09/27/2019 - 09:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-20-051 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to pursue validation studies of cognitive screening instruments or assessments in clinical settings and to translate these screening and assessment tools into electronic health record (EHR) systems that can assist physicians in making clinically meaningful care recommendations for patients experiencing cognitive decline. This FOA requires prior preliminary data gathered during the development of cognitive screening tools and/or assessments. This FOA will also support research to validate these tools as well as their implementation in large clinical settings. Plans for validation of cognitive impairment against relevant Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD) biomarkers are encouraged but not required.

Low Cost Detection of Cognitive Decline in Clinical Settings (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Required)

Fri, 09/27/2019 - 09:42
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-20-050 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to pursue development and validation studies of cognitive screening instruments or assessments in clinical settings and to translate these screening and assessment tools into electronic health record (EHR) systems that can assist physicians in making clinically meaningful care recommendations for patients experiencing cognitive decline. This FOA will support an R61 pilot phase (Stage I) which will allow researchers to develop and validate tools for cognitive assessment and then create scalable, tailored interventions for patients experiencing cognitive decline to help overcome barriers to uptake. If successful, researchers may transition to an R33 phase (Stage IV) for implementation of pragmatic trials. All applicants are required to address health disparities. This FOA does not require preliminary data.
