Small Research Grants for Analyses of Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Data (R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-375 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The NIH Common Fund has established the Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program (Kids First) to develop a pediatric research data resource populated by genome sequence and phenotypic data that will be of high value for the communities of investigators who study the genetics of childhood cancers and/or structural birth defects. Kids First has established and continues to develop a Data Resource including a collection of curated genomic and phenotypic data from childhood cancer and structural birth defects cohorts and a central portal where these data and analysis tools are accessible to the research community. Access to these data will promote comprehensive and cross-cutting research and collaboration leading to more refined diagnostic capabilities and ultimately more targeted therapies. This FOA is intended to support meritorious small research projects focused on analyses of childhood cancer and/or structural birth defects genomic datasets generated by the Kids First program and/or associated phenotypic datasets. Development of approaches, tools, or algorithms appropriate for analyzing genomic, phenotypic, and/or clinical data relevant to Kids First may also be proposed
Funding Opportunity RFA-CA-19-064 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to reduce the burden of cancer and improve the quality of cancer care in rural areas among low-income and/or underserved populations. The FOA encourages two types of applications: 1) observational research that includes pilot testing of intervention to understand and address predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations; or 2) intervention research to address known predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations. Specifically, the focus for observational studies (with pilot testing) is understanding and addressing the predictive and/or mediating role of social determinants of health, barriers to care, and treatment; and the focus for interventional research is on addressing quality of care related to cancer diagnosis, treatment and/or survivorship. Most existing cancer control interventions are not ready for direct implementation and dissemination in low-income rural areas, so proposals should seek to develop, adapt, and/or implement, and test interventions.
Resource-Related Research Projects for Development of Animal Models and Related Materials (R24 Clinical Trials Not-Allowed)
Funding Opportunity RFA-OD-19-027 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) encourages grant applications aimed at developing, characterizing or improving animal models of human diseases; improving access to information about or generated from the use of animal models of human disease; or improving diagnosis and control of diseases of laboratory animals. The animal models and related materials developed must have broad application to multiple NIH Institutes or Centers (ICs) to align with the ORIPs trans-NIH mission. Applications must describe the need and potential impact of the proposed resources on broad research areas supported by multiple NIH ICs. Applications to develop models that relate strictly to a specific disease or a select area of research will not be considered acceptable. Projects that predominantly address the research interests of one NIH IC but are only peripherally related to the research interests of other Institutes and Centers will also not be acceptable for this FOA.

The AMC must consist of the following functional units: a Coordination Center, Clinical Trial Sites, Network Laboratories, and a Statistical Center. The AMC team must have at least four scientific disease-oriented Working Groups to study Kaposi Sarcoma, Lymphoma, Human papilloma virus-associated cancers, and non-AIDS-Defining cancers. The Network Laboratories will be responsible for routine clinical trial support activities, pathogenesis-driven correlative studies, and clinical pharmacology and pharmacokinetics studies of anticancer/antiviral interactions. All clinical trials to be conducted by the AMC must be available to subjects of all racial/ethnic groups.
Funding Opportunity RFA-AI-19-063 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate the development of new and innovative sustained/extended release (SER) drug delivery systems (DDS) that can achieve extended durations (months to years) of HIV prevention in at-risk individuals. This FOA focuses on the following scientific priority DDS: low-volume, self-injectable depots, erosible/biodegradable implants including in situ forming implants, intrauterine delivery systems and transdermal delivery systems. Applications will require an industry partner. Applications incorporating drugs that are already under development or approved for HIV prevention and/or treatment by their intellectual property/patent/license holder must involve these persons/entities in a meaningful and significant manner in the application through letters of support and/or other evidence of a substantial commitment.

Limited Competition: Small Grant Program for NIDDK K01/K08/K23/K25 Recipients (R03 Clinical Trial Optional)
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-365 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) announces a program that provides NIDDK-supported K01, K08, K23, and K25 recipients the opportunity to apply for Small Grant (R03) support at some point during the latter years of their award period of their K award. Through the use of this mechanism, the NIDDK is seeking to enhance the capability of its K01, K08, K23, and K25 award recipients to conduct research as they complete their transition to fully independent investigator status. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 is, therefore, intended to support research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources and that may provide preliminary data to support a subsequent R01, or equivalent, application.
