NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (NIH)

NIH Maximizing Access to Research Careers (T34)
Amount: according to scope
Deadline: May 26, 2023

Note: This is a limited submission opportunity. Please contact Tyler Matsamas if considering applying.

The goal of the Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) program is to develop a diverse pool of undergraduates who complete their baccalaureate degree, and transition into and complete biomedical, research-focused higher degree programs (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.). This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) provides support to eligible, domestic institutions to develop and implement effective, evidence-informed approaches to biomedical training and mentoring that will keep pace with the rapid evolution of the research enterprise. NIGMS expects that the proposed research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, mentoring, and career development elements to prepare trainees for the completion of research-focused higher degree programs in biomedical fields. This program is limited to applications from training programs at baccalaureate degree-granting research-intensive institutions (i.e., those with an average of NIH Research Project Grant funding greater than or equal to $7.5 million total costs over the last 3 fiscal years).


NIH Revision Applications to Support Research on Prevention and Cessation of Menthol Cigarette Use in Populations that Experience Health Disparities (R01, Clinical Trial Optional)
Amount: $200,000 direct costs
Deadline: June 19, 2023

As part of the ADVANCE: Advancing Prevention Research for Health Equity program, the NIH Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) within the Office of the Director Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI) is soliciting revision applications (formerly called “competitive revisions”) to active R01 grants to support studies that develop and evaluate menthol cigarette smoking cessation and prevention interventions for populations that experience health disparities.


NIH Suicide Prevention Across the Life Span in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (R34 Clinical Trial Optional)
Amount: $450,000 direct costs
Deadline: June 20, 2023

The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to encourage formative research and pilot testing of culturally appropriate innovative preventive, therapeutic, and service interventions to reduce the risk of suicide and suicide ideation and behavior (SIB), and/or non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and promote resilience for people across the life span in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). During the development and testing of interventions, attention to implementation factors is strongly encouraged. This could include formative work to measure and understand the feasibility, acceptability, adoption, fidelity, and costs of interventions to reduce the risk of suicide and SIB and/or NSSI and promote resilience for people across the life span in LMICs. All projects must propose a research project element and a research capacity element. Researchers are expected to describe activities between institutions and the countries involved to strengthen research capacity in LMICs and enhance the potential for multidirectional knowledge and research advancements exchange. NIMH encourages applicants from LMICs and welcomes applicants from the United States or other high-income countries (HICs) to partner with sites in LMICs.


NIH Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) (R25 – Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Amount: $250,000 direct costs (annually for up to 5 years)
Deadline: July 14, 2023

The overarching goal of the NIGMS Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) R25 program is to support educational activities that encourage pre-college students (pre-kindergarten to grade 12) from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to pursue further studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). SEPA supports two types of projects: (1) classroom-based projects for pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (pre-college) students and teachers and (2) informal science education (ISE) projects conducted in outside-the-classroom venues such as science centers, museums and libraries.  Projects that support quantitative and computational skills development are strongly encouraged. A SEPA project may focus on one or more of the following activities centered on any discipline of health research within NIH’s mission: Courses for Skills Development; Research Experiences; Mentoring Activities; Curriculum or Methods Development; and/or Outreach.


NIH Developing Measures to Advance Access and Quality in Global Mental Health Services (R34 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Amount: $450,000 direct costs
Deadline: October 18, 2023

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) aims to support the development and pilot testing of outcomes-focused access and quality measures that have the potential to be reviewed, approved and implemented by the relevant regulatory or governing bodies in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) such as Ministries of Health or government-sponsored health insurance schemes. This program announcement uses the R34 mechanism and intends to foster pilot mental health services research in measure development and testing with the potential for high public health impact. NIMH seeks to advance the development of novel and innovative measures to assess changes in access to mental health care, the effectiveness of evidence-based care, and the quality of care across programs or clinical settings, utilizing real-world data.
