Promoting Careers in Aging and Health Disparities Research (K01)

Purpose – The purpose of this initiative is to provide support and protected time to eligible individuals who have been determined by the grantee institution to be committed to a career in health disparities research related to aging and who are members of or knowledgeable about health disparity population groups. Nationally, health disparity population groups include but are not limited to African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the medically underserved, low socioeconomic populations and rural populations. NIA recognizes that each group is unique and disparities vary within and between groups such that not all experience excess deaths or high prevalence of the same diseases. Additionally, the NIA recognizes the importance of a diverse research workforce committed to research aimed at redressing health disparities where they exist and assisting in the breakdown of racial, cultural and ethnic barriers and stereotypes.

R01

Vulnerable Dendrites and Synapses in Aging and Alzheimers Disease (R01)

Purpose – This initiative invites applications for the study of factors regulating neuroplasticity with a particular emphasis on the age-dependent changes in the functions of dendrites, spines and synapses of key cell types in regions of brain especially vulnerable in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and in models (in vitro and in vivo) of aging and of AD. Neuroplasticity refers to the changes in both structure and function of the brain that occur in response to experiential stimuli. This ability of the brain to reorganize itself is critical both in normal development and learning, and it is no less important in aging and neurodegenerative disorders

Basic and Translational Research in Emotion (R01)

Purpose –The purpose of this FOA is to advance the study of emotion at a variety of levels, using a broad range of techniques. Measurements of emotional correlates can be made at the behavioral, neural, and/or physiological levels. Proposals which seek to combine these levels of analysis are especially encouraged. Applications are encouraged at both basic and translational levels. Basic topics of interest include the interface between emotion and cognition, the development of emotions and emotion regulation over the lifespan, and the neurobiological systems involved in emotional function. Translational topics of interest include understanding mechanisms involved in emotional function in mental disorders, the mechanisms by which alcohol/drug dependence and/or withdrawal affects emotions, and the ways individual differences in emotional function impact health behaviors, health-related decision-making, and health outcomes.

Probes for Microimaging The Nervous System (SBIR [R43/R44])

Purpose – This initiative invites Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications that propose research and development of probes useful in imaging the structure and function of the brain and other parts of the nervous system, with award duration and amounts greater than those routinely allowed under the SBIR programs. Specifically this FOA invites SBIR applications that propose research and development of probes that generate signals detectable by one or more imaging modality. Such probes should indicate the structure or function of molecules or subcellular elements of neurons or other cells of the nervous system. Of special interest are applications that propose research and development of novel probes, although significant enhancements of already existing probes are also invited. Grant applications may propose projects that will result in probes solely intended for use in research or probes that might have clinical utility. It is expected that this initiative will require expertise from a variety of disciplines, including neuroscience, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, biotechnology, and bioengineering. Moreover, it is anticipated that these types of expertise will be brought together in various combinations in individual proposed projects.

R01

Novel statistical methods for human gene expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) analysis (R01)

Purpose – This FOA solicits applications to develop innovative statistical methods to detect the influence of genetic variation on tissue-specific gene expression and regulation. The goal of the FOA is to seek proposals to develop statistical methods to appropriately analyze the forthcoming complex data sets generated by the NIH Roadmap initiative entitled “Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) Project”. Applicants are encouraged to take advantage of existing tissue-specific gene expression datasets and/or simulated datasets, but will also be strongly encouraged to utilize GTEx-generated data, if and when it is available.

Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award (U54)

Purpose – The Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) initiative assists institutions to create an integrated academic home for Clinical and Translational Science that has the resources to train and advance multi- and inter-disciplinary investigators and research teams with access to innovative research tools and information technologies that apply new knowledge and techniques to patient care. Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs) attract basic, translational, and clinical investigators, community clinicians, clinical practices, networks, professional societies, and industry to develop new professional interactions, programs, and research projects. Through innovative advanced degree programs, CTSAs foster the discipline of Clinical and Translational Science that is broader and deeper than their separate components (definitions of Clinical and Translational Science are provided in Section I.1 of this document).

Solicitation of Assays for High Throughput Screening (HTS) in the Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) (R03)

Purpose –. The NIH Molecular Libraries Roadmap Initiative wishes to encourage HTS assay applications from investigators who have the interest and capability to work with the Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) for chemical probe development. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) promotes discovery and development of new chemical probes as research tools for use by scientists in both the public and private sectors to advance the understanding of biological functions and disease mechanisms. This initiative is one of the integrated components of the NIH Molecular Libraries Roadmap initiative that offers biomedical researchers access to large-scale automated high throughput screening (HTS) centers in the MLPCN, diverse compound libraries in the Small Molecule Repository (MLSMR) and information on biological activities of small molecules in the PubChem BioAssay public database.
