Adipogenesis, Adipocyte Function and Obesity Following HIV Infection, Antiretroviral Therapy, or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Wed, 05/29/2019 - 10:50
Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-19-008 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The prevalence of obesity is increasing in people with HIV (PWH), contributing to multiple complications associated with this condition. There is mounting evidence that there are unique mechanisms contributing to the development of obesity in PWH versus people without HIV. Furthermore, the biology of the adipocytes might be altered in overweight or obese PWH versus overweight or obese people without HIV. This FOA seeks applications to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of how HIV and antiretroviral drugs used for therapy or pre-exposure prophylaxis contribute to the development of obesity and alter adipocyte and adipose tissue function as well as the effects of these processes on metabolic and physiological processes within the mission of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).

Research Program Award (R35 Clinical Trial Optional)

Wed, 05/29/2019 - 08:28
Funding Opportunity RFA-NS-19-037 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Reissue of RFA-NS-18-032. The purpose of the NINDS Research Program Award (RPA) is to provide longer-term support and increased flexibility to Program Directors (PDs) /Principal Investigators (PIs) whose records of research achievement demonstrate their ability to make major contributions to neuroscience. RPAs will support the overall research programs of NINDS-funded investigators for up to 8 years, at a level commensurate with a PD/PI's recent NINDS support (Part 2, Section II) This greater funding stability will provide eligible investigators at nearly all career stages increased freedom and flexibility, allowing them to be more adventurous in their research, take greater risks, embark upon research that breaks new ground, undertake research projects that require a longer timeframe, and/or extend previous discoveries in new directions. Research supported through the RPA must be within the scope of the NINDS mission (http://www.ninds.nih.gov/about_ninds/mission.htm). Research activities outside of the NINDS mission, or traditionally supported by another NIH Institute or Center will not be considered through this program. Other anticipated benefits of the RPA include: A more stable funding environment, facilitating the pursuit of longer-term research goals; Flexible funding, enabling investigators to pursue research opportunities as they arise, not tied to specific aims; Reduced time spent writing grant applications and managing multiple grant awards, thereby allowing investigators to spend more time conducting and overseeing research; and More time for PDs/PIsto mentor junior scientists. Eligibility to apply through this FOA is limited to investigators who currently have at least one active NINDS R01 or R01 equivalent grant (defined here as R00, R01, R37, R56, DP1 or DP2 awards), and who have had an active R01 equivalent grant from NINDS in each of the past 5 years, with no more than one of those years in a no cost extension.

Building in vivo Preclinical Assays of Circuit Engagement for Application in Therapeutic Development (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Wed, 05/29/2019 - 07:33
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-289 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The overall goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to identify, in animals, in vivo neurophysiological and behavioral measures for use as assays in the early screening phase of treatment development. The FOA will support efforts to optimize and evaluate measures of neurophysiological and behavioral processes that may serve as surrogate markers of neural processes of clinical interest based on available knowledge of the neurobiology of mental illnesses. The screening assays thus developed from this FOA are expected to build upon systems neurobiology and clinical neuroscience to enhance the scientific value of preclinical animal data contributing to a therapeutic development pipeline by assessing the impact of therapeutic targets and treatment candidates on neurobiological mechanisms of clinical relevance to mental illnesses.

The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE): Genomic Risk Assessment and Management Network - Clinical Sites (U01 Clinical Trial Required)

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 10:54
Funding Opportunity RFA-HG-19-013 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to participate in the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Genomic Risk Assessment and Management Network. This network will continue to use biorepositories linked with electronic medical records (EMRs) for genomic research by developing, evaluating, and disseminating genomic risk assessment and management tools for clinical use. Applicants to this FOA are expected to recruit a minimum of 35% of patients who come from racial or ethnic minority populations, underserved populations, or populations who experience poorer medical outcomes. In contrast, applicants to the companion RFA-HG-19-014 are expected to recruit a minimum of 75% of such patients.

The Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE): Genomic Risk Assessment and Management Network - Coordinating Center (U01 Clinical Trial Required)

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 10:54
Funding Opportunity RFA-HG-19-015 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to continue genomic implementation research in the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network by providing support for a Coordinating Center (CC) to provide centralized support, infrastructure, coordination, and data analysis for the program.

Understanding Senescence in Brain Aging and Alzheimer's Disease (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 01:22
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-20-025 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research focused on understanding the role of senescence in brain aging and in Alzheimer's disease (AD). This FOA encourages research projects addressing critical knowledge gaps in our understanding of the neurobiology of senescence through cutting-edge techniques, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and/or conceptual innovation, leveraging what is known about senescence in peripheral tissues to learn more about brain aging. Developing a clear understanding of the mechanisms driving aging processes in the brain, including senescence, is essential for combating age-related neurodegenerative diseases.

Limited Competition: NIA Genome Center for Alzheimer's Disease (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 00:00
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-288 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to continue the operations of the NIA Genome Center for Alzheimer's Disease (GCAD) to facilitate and support the Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP) activities. GCAD will serve as the focal point for all phases of ADSP quality control checking, data harmonization, and meta-analysis. The FOA is intended to support a major component of the full range of analysis for the ADSP. The spectrum of the Center's activities comprises a multidisciplinary attack on Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and AD Related Dementias (ADRD) in keeping with NIA's programmatic needs. The Center will serve as a national resource for the specific purpose of identifying potential avenues for therapeutic approaches and prevention of the disease.

Wed, 05/22/2019 - 02:09
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-287 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The National Cancer Institutes (NCI) Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC) supports systems biology approaches to cancer research and includes U54 CSBC Research Centers, a U24 CSBC Coordinating Center and, through this FOA, well-defined, discrete and circumscribed U01 Research Projects. CSBC Research Projects are expected to involve interdisciplinary teams of scientists, engineers, and cancer researchers who collaborate to advance our understanding of the mechanisms underlying cancer initiation, progression, and treatment. CSBC Research Projects proposed in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement must demonstrate explicit integration of experimental biology and computational modeling to test and validate novel hypotheses in cancer research.
