Federal Funding agencies
NIDCR Small Research Grants for Oral Health Data Analysis and Statistical Methodology Development (R03 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This FOA supports two types of meritorious research projects: 1) secondary data analyses using existing databases relevant to dental, oral, or craniofacial health or practice; and/or 2) development of statistical methodology necessary for improving methods to analyze existing dental, oral, or craniofacial health data. Priority will be given to studies that address causality between risk factors and the dental, oral, or craniofacial health outcome(s) of interest. Hypothesis-generating research in the absence of hypothesis testing will be considered for funding only if carefully described and justified. Studies simply describing correlations or associations between risk factors and dental, oral, or craniofacial health, especially when such associations have been demonstrated previously, are of lower program priority.
Deadline: October 16, 2022. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-22-160 (R03)
Bioengineering Research Grants (BRG) (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
The goal of the bioengineering research grant (BRG) program is to foster development of innovative technologies, methods, tools, models or designs (for brevity, here onwards referred to as tools) that have the potential for significant impact on biomedical research by infusing principles and concepts from quantitative sciences. The purpose of this FOA is to encourage BRG applications that: 1) apply a multidisciplinary approach to solve biomedical problems; and 2) develop, integrate, optimize, validate, translate or accelerate adoption of promising tools, methods, and techniques for a specific research or clinical problem in basic, translational, and/or clinical science and practice. A BRG application may propose design-directed, developmental, discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven research and the FOA is appropriate for small teams applying an integrative approach to increase our understanding of and solve problems in biological, clinical, or translational science.
Deadline: October 31, 2022. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): PAR-22-242 (R01)
Elucidation and Validation of the role of Transporters in the Placenta, Lactating Mammary Gland, Developing Gut, and Blood Brain Barrier (UC2 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement invites applications to form Transporter Elucidation Centers (TECs) as part of a Transporter Elucidation Network (TEN). TECs funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) will address key knowledge gaps in functional transport of nutrients and drugs to the developing fetus and infant through a focus on human placenta, lactating mammary gland, and developing gut. Such projects may necessitate deorphanization and characterization of understudied transporters and functional variants. TECs funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) will address knowledge gaps in the role of transporters in the blood brain barrier that transport substances and treatment agents relevant to NIDA. TECs will work together to generate knowledge and resources that will be shared with the broader research community to advance our understanding of nutrient, drug, and dietary supplement constituent transport to the developing fetus and infant.
Deadline: November 30, 2022. Applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
