National Dental Practice-Based Research Network: Clinical Trial or Observational Study Planning and Implementation Cooperative Agreement (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Optional)

Fri, 10/05/2018 - 10:31
Funding Opportunity RFA-DE-19-006 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) intends to continue support for research conducted within a national Dental Practice-Based Research Network (DPBRN). The NIDCR will fund one national DPBRN Administrative and Resource Center (RFA-DE-19-001) and one national DPBRN Coordinating Center (RFA-DE-19-002) as companion awards to support the infrastructure for and implementation of multiple observational studies and clinical trials. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is soliciting applications for investigator-initiated clinical observational studies and clinical trials to be conducted in the DPBRN through a milestone-driven UG3/UH3 cooperative agreement mechanism. Each UG3/UH3 award will support an individual project which will utilize the DPBRN infrastructure and resources for study planning and implementation. This FOA supports a UG3 clinical study planning phase and potential transition to a UH3 implementation phase, with a combined total funding period of up to six years. Progression to the UH3 phase is based on an administrative review and is dependent on success in meeting UG3 milestones, consideration of the DPBRN as an appropriate venue for conduct of the research, NIDCR program priorities, and availability of funds. The main goals of the national DPBRN are to streamline the implementation of national oral health research studies in dental practices on topics of importance to practitioners and their patients, to provide evidence useful in daily patient care, and to facilitate the translation of research findings into clinical practice.

Fc-Dependent Mechanisms of Antibody-Mediated Killing (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Fri, 10/05/2018 - 10:13
Funding Opportunity RFA-AI-18-042 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications from institutions and organizations to conduct research focused on elucidating mechanisms of Fc-dependent, antibody-mediated killing of infected or aberrant cells, or antibody-mediated therapeutic ablation of cells implicated in immune pathologies, including autoimmune and allergic diseases. Studies supported by this FOA are expected to define variables that affect efficiencies of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and/or antibody-dependent cell-mediated phagocytosis (ADCP), both in vitro and in vivo. U01 awardees will be expected to attend annual Program Progress/Steering Committee meetings and present progress to fellow awardees and to NIAID program staff. The goal of the meetings is to facilitate collaborations between funded investigators and to accelerate development of mechanistic models that incorporate the collective findings of this program. Advances in our understanding of these Fc-dependent killing mechanisms will inform more efficient design and optimization of ablative antibody therapeutics and may also inform design of vaccines that preferentially elicit ADCC- or ADCP-efficient antibody responses. This FOA uses the U01 grant mechanism, while the companion FOA, PA-19-xxx, uses the R21 mechanism. High risk/high reward projects with limited preliminary data or utilize existing data may be most appropriate for the R21 mechanism.

Fc-Dependent Mechanisms of Antibody-Mediated Killing (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Fri, 10/05/2018 - 10:13
Funding Opportunity PA-19-020 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites R21 applications for studies that address knowledge gaps in mechanisms of Fc-dependent, antibody-mediated killing of infected cells or aberrant cells, or antibody-mediated therapeutic ablation of cells implicated in immune pathologies, including autoimmune and allergic diseases. More specifically, the purpose of this FOA is to promote innovative and exploratory research to elucidate mechanisms of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and antibody-dependent cell-mediated phagocytosis (ADCP), and to promote development of tools, technologies, and animal models to facilitate identification and evaluation of cytotoxic killing mechanisms mediated by human antibodies in vivo.

Clinical Trial Readiness for Rare Diseases, Disorders, and Syndromes (R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Thu, 10/04/2018 - 11:22
Funding Opportunity PAR-18-952 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites researchers to submit applications for support of clinical projects that address critical needs for clinical trial readiness in rare diseases. The initiative seeks applications that are intended to facilitate rare disease research by enabling efficient and effective movement of candidate therapeutics or diagnostics towards clinical trials, and to increase their likelihood of success through development and testing of rigorous biomarkers and clinical outcome assessment measures, or by defining the presentation and course of a rare disease to enable the design of upcoming clinical trials.

Funding Opportunity RFA-NS-19-011 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of the NIH Blueprint Diversity Specialized Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Advancement in Neuroscience (D-SPAN) Award is to support a defined pathway across career stages for outstanding graduate students who are from backgrounds that are nationally underrepresented in neuroscience research. This two-phase award will facilitate completion of the doctoral dissertation and transition of talented graduate students to strong neuroscience research postdoctoral positions, and will provide career development opportunities relevant to their long-term career goal of becoming independent neuroscience researchers.

Dysregulation and Proximal Risk for Suicide (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Wed, 10/03/2018 - 08:48
Funding Opportunity RFA-MH-19-210 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. A major goal of research on suicide is to improve our understanding of who is at most risk, why people transition from suicidal thoughts to action, and when to intervene (Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention, Short-term Objective 1.C). Risk is a dynamic process and suicide attempts are often preceded by acute stressors. While many studies of suicide risk focus on emotion dysregulation, fewer studies have examined Arousal and Regulation and how these domains dynamically shape emotional and cognitive functions such as response to reward, frustrative non-reward, cognitive flexibility and control, or decision-making. Very few studies in the NIMH portfolio on suicide risk have focused on proximal risk. This FOA will fund research that will address these gaps, provide understanding of the mechanisms of how dysregulation interacts with Cognition, Negative and Positive Valence to determine time-varying risk, and identify modifiable targets for timely interventions during high risk periods. Applications submitted in response to this FOA must explicitly explore how interactions between at least one construct in the domain of Arousal and Regulation and one or more constructs in other RDoC domains are linked to imminent risk for suicide attempts. Studies that are focused solely on static suicidal traits, past behavior, or distal risk will not be considered responsive to this FOA, nor will studies that are solely focused on a single RDoC domain.
