Description: The core goal of this RFA is to increase investigations into decision-making, across multiple levels of analysis. Applications that respond to this FOA are expected to propose projects that will further our understanding of the basic behavioral and social mechanisms and processes involved in decision making, and contribute to unifying scientific inquiry across a wide range of biological, behavioral, and social science disciplines that examine judgment and decision making. The only firm limitation is that the project fall within the scope of basic behavioral and social science research (b-BSSR), as described here http://oppnet.nih.gov/about-faqs.asp.

Small Grants Program for Cancer Epidemiology (R03)

ID: PAR-12-039

Application Due Date(s): July 23, 2013; November 19, 2013; March 18, 2014; July 22, 2014; November 18, 2014, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-039.html

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages the submission of Small Research Grant (R03) applications for research on cancer etiology and epidemiology. The overarching goal of this FOA is to provide support for pilot projects, testing of new techniques, secondary analyses of existing data, development and validation of measurement methods, linkage of genetic polymorphisms with other variables related to cancer risk, and development of innovative projects for more comprehensive research in cancer etiology and epidemiology.

Using the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) funding mechanism, this FOA focuses on different types of projects including, but not limited to: (1) pilot and feasibility studies; (2) secondary analysis of existing data; (3) small, self-contained research projects; (4) development of research methodology; and (5) development of new research technology. The R03 mechanism is critical for collection of pilot data that can be used for larger grant applications such as the Research Project Grant Mechanism (R01). R01 studies in cancer epidemiology usually require large sample sizes, complex logistics, extensive fieldwork, acquisition of biospecimens, and, sometimes, the acquisition of sensitive information such as reproductive histories.

Cancer Education Grants Program (R25)

ID: PAR-12-049

Application Due Date(s): Standard dates apply (see schedule)

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-049.html

Description: The NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism supports creative and innovative research education programs for the development of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical researchers, or for education and outreach on health-related research to a variety of audiences. Research education grants are not typical research instruments. The awards are intended to support institutional educational programs but not research projects. Applications must include a plan to evaluate the educational activities proposed (see Section IV, Evaluation Plan) and a plan for disseminating results (see Section IV, Dissemination Plan). The NCI uses this FOA to support innovative institutional educational programs in the mission area(s) of the National Cancer Institute (http://strategicplan.nci.nih.gov/).

Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) High Throughput Genotyping and Sequencing Resource Access (X01)

ID: PAR-11-210

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-210.html

Application Due Date: Applications are accepted by continuous receipt.

Description: This FOA is seeking projects that show promise of identifying genetic element(s) important to human health and disease. CIDR high-throughput genotyping, sequencing and supporting statistical genetics services are designed to aid the identification of genes that contribute to human health and disease. The services provided through CIDR focus primarily on needs that can’t be readily handled by individual investigator laboratories. CIDR provides the most up-todate platforms and services. This is an NIH-wide initiative that is managed by NHGRI. There should be strong evidence that the project proposed is likely to have the power to detect genetic factors affecting the trait under study. In addition, there should be a clear need for the particular high-throughput service requested. Appropriate projects would include but not be limited to: Human GWAS studies for common human diseases; human and mouse genome-wide linkage analyses, whole genome sequencing, whole-exome and custom-targeted DNA sequencing, analyses of DNA methylation and custom SNP genotyping. Offered through the National Cancer Institute.

Early Phase Clinical Trials in Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions (R21)

ID: PAR-11-216

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-216.html

Application Due Date: November 13, 2013; March 13, 2014

Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to support clinical trials conducting preliminary evaluation of the safety and efficacy of imaging agents, as well as an assessment of imaging systems, image processing, image-guided therapy, contrast kinetic modeling, and 3-D reconstruction and other quantitative tools. As many such preliminary evaluations are early in development, this FOA will provide investigators with support for pilot (Phase I and II) cancer imaging clinical trials, including patient monitoring and laboratory studies. The imaging and Image-guided Intervention (IGI) investigations, if proven successful in these early clinical trials, can then be validated in larger studies through competitive R01 mechanisms, or through clinical trials in the Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs), Cancer Center and/or Cooperative Groups.

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

ID: PAR-11-346

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-346.html

Application Due Date: May 15, 2014

Description: 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, and HIV-infection. The intervention program should be culturally appropriate and promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles, improve behaviors and social conditions and/or improve environmental conditions related to chronic disease, the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, mental illness or HIV-infection. The intervention program should be designed so that it could be sustained within the entire community within existing resources, and, if successful, disseminated in other Native American communities. The long-term goal of this FOA is to reduce mortality and morbidity in NA communities. For the purposes of this FOA Native Americans include the following populations: Alaska Native, American Indian, and Native Hawaiian. The term ‘Native Hawaiian’ means any individual any of whose ancestors were natives, prior to 1778, of the area which now comprises the State of Hawaii.
