Early-life Factors and Cancer Development Later in Life (R21)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research focused on the role of early-life factors in cancer development later in life.Given that current emerging evidence from limited research indicates a potentially important role for early-life events and exposures in cancer development, it is necessary to better understand 1) the early-life (maternal-paternal, in utero, birth and infancy, puberty and adolescence, and teenage and young adult years) factors that are associated with later cancer development; 2) how early-life factors mediate biological processes

Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) of Genomic Research Regular Research Program (R01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites Research Project Grant (R01) applications that propose to study the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of human genome research.Applications should propose well-integrated studies using either single or mixed methods.Proposed methods may include, but are not limited to, data-generating qualitative or quantitative approaches, legal, economic or normative analyses, or other analytical or conceptual research methodologies.

Innovative Therapies and Tools for Screenable Disorders in Newborns (R03)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA encourages Research Project Grant (R03) 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.

Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations (R01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to develop, adapt, and test the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in Native American (NA) populations. NA populations are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase their likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, mental illness, oral diseases, and HIV-infection.

NIDCD Research on Hearing Health Care (R21)

This FOA encourages Research Project Grant (R21) applications from institutions/organizations to support research leading to accessible and affordable hearing health care (HHC). The overarching emphasis is on the acquisition of knowledge that can be rapidly translated into new or enhanced approaches for access, assessment or interventions with a goal to delivering better hearing health care outcomes.

Neurobiology of Migraine (R21)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is issued by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in conjunction with the NIH Pain Consortium. It solicits R21 grant applications from institutions/organizations to perform innovative research that will elucidate the mechanisms underlying migraine, expand our current knowledge of the role of genetic, physiological, biopsychosocial, and environmental influences in migraine susceptibility and progression, and explore new therapeutic targets and therapies for acute migraine management and longer term prevention.

Discovery of Molecular Targets for Pregnancy-Related/Induced Diseases and Development of Therapeutics to Prevent/Treat These Diseases (R01)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage grant applications that will identify molecular targets for pregnancy associated/induced disorders and will lead to the development of new safer and more effective medications for use in pregnancy.

Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25)

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this NIBIB-NICHD R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.
