Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (Parent K23)

The purpose of the NIH Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23) is to support the career development of individuals with a clinical doctoral degree who have made a commitment to focus their research endeavors on patient-oriented research. Individuals with a clinical degree who are interested in further career development in biomedical research other than patient-oriented research should refer to the Mentored Clinical Scientist Career Development (Parent K08) Award.

Discovery of in vivo Chemical Probes (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to support investigators who have interest and capability to join efforts for the discovery of in vivo chemical probes. It is expected that applicants will have in hand the starting compounds (validated hits) for chemical optimization and bioassays for testing new analog compounds.

Innovative Therapies and Tools for Screenable Disorders in Newborns (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/ organizations that propose research relevant to the basic understanding and development of therapeutic interventions for currently screened conditions and high priority genetic conditions for which screening could be possible in the near future.In this FOA, a high priority condition is one for which the development of an efficacious therapy would make the condition amenable to newborn screening.

Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R03)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages investigators to submit research grant applications that will identify, develop, evaluate and refine effective and efficient methods, systems, infrastructures, and strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based health behavior change interventions, evidence-based prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and management, and quality of life improvement services into public health, clinical practice, and community settings.

Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of Genomic Research Exploratory/Developmental Research Program (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Exploratory/Developmental Research Program Grant (R21) applications that propose to study the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of human genome research.Applications should propose exploratory or developmental studies that break new ground or extend previous discoveries in new directions.Of particular interest are studies that explore the implications of new or emerging genomic technologies or novel uses of genomic information.

Research on Autism Spectrum Disorders (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research grant applications to support research designed to elucidate the etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and optimal means of service delivery in relation to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

Methodology and Measurement in the Behavioral and Social Sciences (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite qualified researchers to submit grant applications aimed at improving and developing methodology in the behavioral and social sciences through innovations in research design, measurement, data collection and data analysis techniques.

Lab to Marketplace: Tools for Brain and Behavioral Research (R43/R44)

The NIH and other research sponsors invest a significant amount of funds in the development of new technologies to study the brain and behavior, from basic and clinical perspectives, through a variety of mechanisms, including, from NIH, the R01, R21, R33, P01, P41, and P50 grants. This investment has produced a large number of technologies that include hardware (e.g., instruments, devices, etc.), software (e.g., computational models, informatics tools, data analytic methods, etc.) and wetware (e.g., cell-free assays, bioactive agents, imaging probes, etc.).

Research on Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage epidemiological, clinical and translational research that will increase our understanding of the natural history, prevalence, biological mechanisms, psychological variables, and clinical risk factors responsible for the presence of multiple chronic pain conditions in people with pain. Recent clinical findings suggest that substantial overlap may exist between chronic pain conditions.
